So I had an experience today that I figured I would ask the internet’s opinion on, so this isn’t actually a full entry, but more of a question.
Today, for lunch, a male co-worker and I ran over to Panda Express. Since he had paid for lunch a few days earlier, it was my turn. We got to the cashier, told him we were paying together, and I handed the man cash. The man proceeded to hand the change to my co-worker, then looked at him and asked if he would like a receipt. This question kind of got overlooked by the obvious act of my co-worker handing me the change that was actually mine, and I loudly and firmly told the cashier, that no, I did not need the receipt.
So my question is, am I over-reacting and maybe this was a simple misunderstanding, or does this seem seriously messed up that even though I had paid, I was not given my own change and apparently it was not up to me whether or not I get the receipt for something my money had gone to?
I got pretty upset, but then I hesitated and wondered whether or not I was just being paranoid over nothing?
So what are all of your thoughts on this?
