Check Out Cheats

This grocery store, sad to say, is not an uncommon thing, or so it seems to me. Just tonight at Walmart, I picked up a gallon of paint that was marked 50% off, and the cashier charged me full price. I have had it happen at Walgreens with a pair of toenail clippers taht were marked on sale for $4, but the check out boy tried to charge me $12, and then argued with me until I drug his butt back to the shelf and showed him where the sign said $4!
So, do you watch your purchases when you go shopping?

However, the law says (here in the United Kingdom anyway, I am not sure about anywhere else) that any item must be sold at the price which is advertised on it.
It does not matter if they say "there was a promotion on this item yesterday, but we forgot to take the tag away", it is their resposibility and their responsibility alone to take the amended price tags away when a special offer ends.
The law is very clear on that: the price you see is the price you pay.
Even if an item has a price sticker on it, but there is a tag on the shelp that says "Now 50% off the regular price" or "£0.50", while the sticker on the item says "£1.50", then it is the price mentioned on the tag that counts, and they do not have a leg to stand on.
Trading Standards would be very happy to hear about that too.
So, if any cashier tries to ring up a different amount than what is on a "special offer" label, just stand your ground and insist they do things correctly. Ask to see a manager if you have to, and just remind him of what the law says.
f they cannot be bothered to check their price list and labeling properly while stacking shelves, then it is entirely their problem, not yours.

Since this seems to happen to me on a pretty regular basis, I'd be willing to bet this is a pretty common occurance. People should really watch what's going on when they are checking out of any store.

because when we keep quiet about that and let it go, they will multiply, it is as if we are tolerating them.
I could not agree with you more. Tolerating this type of behavior or actions, which in reality are really criminal actions should never be overlooked. If we let them slide they will continue to do it. However, when we catch them at it, and "punish" them, either by loudly pointing out their attempt at theivery or by refusing to shop in their store anymore their bad behaviour is fixed if they loose customers and end up going broke.
