If a cashier gave you too much change would you be honest?

You're at the grocery. The cashier goes to give you a $20 bill back as part of your change but you later realize that there were 2 bills stuck together so you got an extra $20. What would YOU do?

Give it back! Honesty is a reflection on us. If we upheld ourself to a standard and showed honesty in our dealings, it also shows good moral character. That is important when you go for a job.


Besides, i used to work as a cashier. I was always careful and was never shorted. But, if we were, guess who got the write ups? Some places even take it out of their paychecks.

I've had it happen to me a couple of times, and I've always given the money back. It is totally unethical to take advantage of someone else's mistake.

Give it back even though I will be tempted to keep it.

Yes, it's happened to me several times.

*Looking up at Bear's* Conversely, I have had to correct cashier's shortchanging as well.....many times!

I'll give it back, I don't think it's right to take what you aren't supposed to be getting back.

Depends on the amount, like $9 or less I'll give them back but for more than $10 I'll keep it.

Once I found 20 bucks on the floor and I gave it to the cashier. I should keep it cuz someone lost 20 bucks on the floor and no one claim it so store keep it. Grrr.

Once I found 20 bucks inside atm machine and bank was closed so I do not know what to do with it so I keep it.


As for the store, umm sometime I let them know if they gave me too much changes back and/ I let them know when they gave me less changes than I should get.

I've called the cashier on it on the spot and it is corrected. Besides, many cashiers now have a camera above them that would show too much change given.

Give it back to the cashier and tell him/her that he/she made a mistake.

Once time the cashier stole my money by not giving my change back like less amount after I gave her $20.00 I was so furious. I made a complained and the front desk took her tray and they count it. It was over the amount and then gave back my change. I left the store and stared at the lady to let her know that she was wrong for not being honest. Later I found out she doenst work there anymore cuz of her dishonest. TSK TSK!!

I don't ever count my change, because I don't want to hurt cashier feeling.
I don't want her or him to think I don't trust them.

oh I didn't read the first post. Yeah of course if I notice it, I'll give back.

But most of the time, cashier gives me change, and I put in my purse and not notice anything.

my vote says I'd go back and give the money back but im not usually give money to the stores if cash found on the floor!

when im lives in MO for about 8 months and i found cash i dont know who that cash i kept it and unknown people have cash! and my friends very lucky to kept that cash!

mostly stores or banks have problems with cash you should kept cash but i dont think its would be steal! but im sure the banks have camera its more serious!

but i never have mistakes for kept money NEVER! but my mom didnt know that! and when i found cash in wash like $10.00 its my brother's money and i kept all the times and my brother never knew where his money is!

stealing from your brother? How nice, not! I'm glad I'm not your sister.

When I found change or dollar bills in the washer or dryer and in the washer/dryer are my boys clothes, I would know those change and dollar bills belongs to either one of them. I would ask them if they lost any change or dollar bills, then I will give it back to either one of them who claims it belongs to either one of them. If not, I'll split the money and give the equal change or dollar bills to them. It's only fair if it goes unclaimed.

Red face

I never forgot, I was hurry at the bank. The teller gave me $500 dollars more when I was at red light traffic to count my money. I was perplexed and re-count my money twice. I said, whoa wait a minute, I got over 500 dollars cash in my hands.

I have known that teller for years, I came back to her. She was surprised to seeing me show up at the bank with 500 cash over in my hands. She was big relived with honest person.

She learns sign language, thank you welcome, etc.. It makes me that I am special customer at the bank.

I would give back money to the cashier. It had happened to me many times and the cashier always sign with big relief and thanked me so much. I can't keep the cash that isn't mine, plus I know God is watching me.

LOl 2c that is why us cashier's are always supposed to count the change back. Sadly, many don't and when I have the time, I usually correct them and force them to count my change back to me. Usually, they just sigh and roll their eyes at me. I always tell them, counting change back keeps you from shortchanging and or from giving too much back, and makes you a better cashier and more valuable to the company.

That usually straightens them right up! lol
