Do you ever get cashiers erroneously rounding up and refusing to correct the mistake?
It came out to $11.83 + HST = $13.37. I didn't have enough loonies/toonies to make exact change so I handed the cashier a $20 and he gives me $6.60 back (charging me $13.40). And he gave me the $6 all in loonies because they didn't have any 5s or toonies. lol. I told him "what about the nickel? 7 rounds down to 5" And he said "no it rounds up to $13.40" and he shows me the receipt. I didn't check to see if the cash register rounds up to $13.40. I just know that by law 7 rounds down to 5 and I'm right. Then I instinctively say "yeah, whatever" (I hate being a dick to service workers, especially if they're paid minimum wage but this is bullshit) and he asked me if there was something wrong and I just said no and dropped it. I didn't want to make a scene and school this minimum wage employee on how to do math. In Canada, 1, 2, 6 and 7 rounds down. 3, 4, 8 and 9 rounds up. That is the official rule.
Are small franchises/establishments purposely rounding up to skim customers or what?
If they are always going to round up and nickel and dime me (literally) like this, I'm just going to stop paying them cash and then they're gonna have to pay Visa a whopping 1.5% or whatever the **** they pay. I sold bitcoins for cash locally on a casual basis in recent months so I like to pay with cash whenever possible.
Ah well, on the bright side, their butter chicken pizza is a lot cheaper than Pizza Hut's. And it's pretty good. I've been happy with their pizza thus far. I'm sick of Pizza Pizza and Domino's. Pizza Hut is way too overpriced. And Popular Pizza is pretty competitively priced and has some nice specialty pizzas.
