Yes, because cashiers are rated in performance on accuracy at the end if their shift. If they are aware of the mistake they can make efforts to be more careful.

Yes, because it's the right thing to do. I have a conscience and morals.

There was one time I got overcharged for something, but then I ended up with too much change back. I was going to try to fix both, but when I did the math, the difference was about 10 cents. So I left and didn't worry about it.

Wow. Some of you sell your integrity very cheaply! If you're going to complain when they short you, you need to give it back when give you too much. Everyone makes mistakes. Keeping it is stealing.

NO! I would keep it! I don't know in Canada things are very expensive and here stores have insurance so if money is misssing its not a big deal as these multi-million/billion corps. have coverage and insurance! Why give it back....its their mistake not mine....they already rip you off on over priced goods! In the U.S. things are dirt cheap so for a .99 strawberries and they give you back more change oh yes be honest...but in Canada strawberries organic can be 6.99 - if they give me more back - hello i'm keeping it!

Karma is a punk my friend. Someone once gave me two $50 bills that were stuck together. They had no idea, but I caught it. I gave it back. Stealing is stealing.

It takes away from the store though meaning it takes away from the cashier's who don't get paid enough as it is. It's not the cashier's who are ripping you off, it's the higher up people who generate the prices. I just feel like the day I'm ever that stupid to want to keep it will be the day that the person at the register is a single mother and her getting fired over something like that would just be tragic.

USA cheap?
I just went to buy blueberries.
They were $6.99 for the relatively small container.
No way, no how.
Even to rent an apartment here in NY, is astronomical.
A small one bedroom is going for $1200. a month and that's NOT
Manhattan.
Greed is out of control.

It all depends on first impressions. Every person struggles at some point during their life, but it is how we choose to handle ourselves during and after the struggle that truly define our character. If the store owner was rude and unfriendly upon me making a nice gesture of friendly communication or even simply asking where a product is. His or her attitude would be the main factor of consideration of keeping or giving the extra money back. I say, if a person shows you kindness then you give it right back to them. Especially small business owners, we need to support them before the entire nation is consumed by Starbucks, McDonalds , Walmart , ect. If they are rude however, the. I say that's karma for their behavior and their stupidity of handing more money then necessary is their punishment.

I've been on both sides of the register and know what it's like. Yes, I have returned overages on both sides - if I know there's an overage and I don't respond accordingly it's stealing plain and simple. Don't base your decision on the staff, base it on right and wrong, we all have bad days so reflect the good within you.

I've walked more than my share of newbie cashiers on how to lay cash across a drawer, then count back change. The owner offered me a job but I had to decline b/c there's no public transit this far in the boonies & even pre-autoimmune diseases, I'm far too over-qualified for positions locally.

As someone who works a cash register I have given people money back that have given me too much,as much as $20.00. I have also given money back to the cashier who has given me too much. It is just the right thing to do.

If the cashier is friendly and I catch the error before I leave the store I return it. If they are surly and they make a mistake I consider it my tip for putting up with their abuse. If I have made it to my car or even home I keep it if its under a dollar. If its just a gross error like giving me change for a 20 when I gave them a 10 I return it no matter what.. and if the clerk was stupid or rude I return it to the manager instead. Lets face it they should have to take the heat for their errors. For sure when they give me less change than I deserve they fight me over it so all's fair in love, war and shopping-- terms that are not mutually exclusive!

Their drawers have to add up at the end of the night and they can get fired for this sort of thing. It's common decency to let them know.

I was given an extra $10 bill by a grocery cashier. That grocery store docked cashiers money they were short. She alone was supporting herself and her mentally challenged brother on her minimum wage salary - $10 would have been a big loss for her considering what a dollar bought back then, 50 years ago. I told her that she gave me an extra $10 bill, but she was stubborn, saying that she NEVER made mistakes. She refused to take back the bill. I finally just put the $10 bill on her counter and told her to hold it until she counted the money at the end of the day. If she wasn't short, she could give it back to me. If she was short, I told her to put the money into the till, balance out and her manager would not be the wiser. She was short the $10 and when I saw her the next day, she thanked me profusely for my honesty which spared her the loss of $10 and the wrath of her manager. Do unto others...

I used to not give it back, but now I would! I work at McDonalds and if your till is $2 above or below what its supposed to be, you get written up. And if you get written up a certain amount of times you get fired! So please everyone, give the cashier the extra change back if they made a mistake!

I usually give it back if I notice. There was one time that the guy gave me the wrong change and I noticed when I was walking home. I would have turned around and returned it if he did not give me a hard time at the store. His bad service left me with no desire to return it.

I kind of understand where you're coming from, but look at it this way... his bad deed affected you in a negative way and caused you to preform a bad deed (keep money that wasn't yours) instead what you should of said to yourself was, I will rise above him and his attitude and be a batter person... walked back, gave it back and gave him a big smile and walked on home.

Keep it. As a business you have to employ people that know what they're doing, those who can't even give correct change will find themselves without a job.

I think that most individuals give back the extra change because they know that the cashier is responsible for the money in the register. I mean, who wants someone to get burned just so you can have some extra change or a few extra bucks?
