Ive just been to Tescos to get some bits. While I was at the counter, I remembered I had a Euro ticket and asked the guy to check it. For three numbers I got £7.32. When I gave him my card to pay the bill he had taken the said amount off the bill. I asked for the cash but he said it makes not difference and debitted my card for my bill minus my lottery winnings.

I wanted that £7.32 in my purse!!

Am I just being hormonal?

He should have asked you. It's your money, not his.

I would want it in cash too. I know it makes no difference really, but I'd still want to see it! Otherwise it just feels like they've given you a bit of money off your shopping.

You might have wanted it in cash so you had some cash. Was it Tesco?

highhopes- she probably said she could sell you a different one because she knew she was being a twat.

Phipps - I think this was the clue Ive just been to Tescos grin

Kittya - he was out of order. The money might have been yours and the debit card from a joint account. It's your money - your choice anyway. He was being a complete twat.

I guess it wouldve been worse if it had been my credit card.

I thought you meant 7.32 MILLION!!
"Wow!" I thought "How can she ask for that in CASH?!"

I don't think you're being unreasonable. Wish it HAD been 7.32 million for you, though grin

can you imagine getting cash back for that amount? grin

when he asked if you wanted cash back you should have said 'yes please £7.32' grin

lilyliz Sat 13-Nov-10 17:16:16

he should have asked,and I agree with Mumbar.
