A Durban man was shocked after realising he bought steak and kidney pies worth R495.
Detailing the incident on his Facebook web page, Kajal Raman says he went to Pick n Pay on Tuesday and was shocked when he noticed his until slip after buying his goodies.
Raman bought 16 objects that amounted to a complete of over R500, whereas the full price ought to have been lower than R200. This is due to the pies that price R495.
The value sticker hooked up to the pie reveals that the R495 value is for 22 objects (pies), which is what confused lots of people below the feedback part as to how did the shop permit such an incident to occur as he clearly didn’t purchase twenty-two pies.
“Went to Pick n Pay this morning, and I used to be shocked once I noticed my until slip. Then I bought into the automobile, and my thoughts was saying one thing’s not proper with the until slip. So I took the pies out from the packet simply to double-check and was shocked to see the value. I went to the store, and so they gave me my money again. As for the person who was on that until, there was no manner round. So folks, please watch your until slips on the value of the stuff that you just purchase,” wrote Raman.
Facebook customers shortly commented on how that is all complicated and that he did a superb job by checking.
“What if the pie makes you age backwards, and the value was really a cut price?” commented one person.
“But how did you pay R600 money for lower than R200 worth of products in your basket and never suppose something of it instantly? I might not blame the cashier on this case – it is the one who value tagged that pie,” wrote one other person.
“But you mentioned pies …The price ticket clearly reveals 22 objects and the value of the pies. Plus you bought a reduction on the pies. How do you clarify that?” questioned a 3rd.
