I went in for 2, paid for 4 and left with 6.
I’m still a little befuddled, but I think I ran a scam on the Tim’s at the corner.
I went in for 2, paid for 4. Okay, anybody who buys doughnuts knows that part is easy. "hmmm, well maybe we’ll want a snack tonight… I’d better get 2 each." and so I did.
…paid for 4 and left with 6.
Less easy. I paid for the doughnuts, 80cents each = $3.42 (w/tax), then realized that I could buy 6 for $3.75 = $4.01 (w/tax). So I asked what the price difference would be, she played with the register which displayed the price of both options. So I asked for 2 more and if it’d be okay I’d just pay her the difference. She gave me the extras and walked away.
I stood there, waiting, cash in hand for a couple of minutes until she returned… assuming of course that she was trying to figure out how to do the transaction.
Nope. When she came back she seemed confused that I was still there and wanted to pay. "It’s only 3 cents, it’s fine"
So out I walked with 6 doughnuts having paid for 4, and only really wanting 2.
