    When someone says to me "I hate the f*****g English" and I say "come and meet my wife,she's English, and you can tell her"
    Hahaha happens to my wife a lot too, she loves letting them rant on before declaring her husband is English and watch them backtrack.

    Not only can you enjoy a solid finger of chocolate, if you get in touch with Nestlé(or whoever) explaining the issue and give the packet reference number they will invariably send you vouchers for more free chocolate,,,, double bubble bonus!

    Making an absolute mess of an order at work and getting a customer entirely the wrong goods. Then getting an enquiry from another customer who is looking for exactly what you have brought in in error and thinks you are wonderful for being able to supply it next day. All whilst the original customer calls you to say they are really sorry but there has been a delay and they can't accept their order for another 2 weeks thus giving time to correct the original error as well. Serendipity.

    Happened to me today and a mistake potentially worth a few thousand pounds has been resolved with no one except me even knowing it occurred. A pretty massive victory tbh.

    When you walk up to the till in Ted Baker with a pair of Jeans expecting to pay £55 and when the staff member scans them and says thats £35 please. In the sale but not marked on the price tag as a sale item. Win.

    When you take a six pack of beer to the checkout in Tenerife supermarket and the assistant scans one can and charges you 80 cents for six. :-)

    Nope not at all. Shoplifting is when you select something (sometimes conceal it) and leave the shop making no attempt to pay. The fact that I handed it to the cashier who then scanned it and told me how much I had to pay for it puts me in the clear.

    Not sure of the legal ins and outs, especially in Spain but logic would say to me that the moment I realised I'd not paid for something then it's theft, mistake or not. Not having a go, just my thoughts on the situation.

    The point is I did pay but was charged incorrectly.

    Aye, but you realised it and had the opportunity to correct the mistake. Like I said I'm not having a go but find the legal/moral conundrum interesting.

    I see where you are coming from, there are no legal implications what so ever as I paid. With regard to morals and my knowledge of short payment that's a decision I made on the day. I realise you are not having a go but are probably saying you would have felt compelled to highlight the mistake which is fair enough. Rightly or wrongly I tend to consider these sort of things fair game especially in supermarkets with the amount of incorrect scans that often go against you. Incorrect change however is a different story as I would hate a checkout operator to be accused of stealing from a till, I will always tell them if they have given me too much and indeed have done several times over the years.

    No mate, I'm not saying I'd be compelled to highlight the mistake. Truth be told I'm not sure how I'd react. That's probably why I find the scenario interesting.

    The smile of relief you see when a customer hands in a wallet they found in the car park thats clearly bulging with money (I work at a trade counter) and the owner comes in to find it handed in.

    Many years back I would stoat back from the Jewel Miners club at silly O'clock, my pockets full of smash & a few notes.Daughters would help themselves to a few of the coins but I sometimes stashed a few spare notes on top of a tall fridge in the kitchen, that would top up my bevvy money for the following week. A couple of years later & money tight in the happy household I was painting the kitchen & to my joy found £50 in various notes on top of the fridge, cracking victory 😄
