Shut your dang mouth!

I just have to share this story with everyone because it’s just not fair!
I had to get fuel today, and as per usual the price of fuel is a total rip off! But lucky for me I had a fuel discount voucher for .4 cents off per litre. So I decided that I may as well fill all the way up, right?
I ended up getting 44.09 Litres of fuel at $137.4 per litre. It came to $60.58. I was trying to do some handy dandy calculations on my way into pay, thinking I was going to get maybe $1 or $2 off the total price after I surrendered my voucher.
I walk up to the counter, and here is how it went down:
Me:  Hi, number four thanks J
Fat pimply teenager: Err, that’s $66.58, have you got any vouchers today?
Me: Sure do!  (Hands over voucher)
Fat pimply teenager: That’s a double voucher Miss, so you get 8c of per litre (scans docket)
Me: Sweet! Fuels to expensive as it is!
Fat pimply teenager: (types something into cashier) that comes to $21.78 thanks

Cheering at super cheap fuel!!

Now instead of me keeping my mouth trap shut about how drastically CHEAP my fuel is, I say (as I’m paying)
Me: Um....was that for bowsers Number 4?
Fat Pimply teenager: Yes, DSI05?
Me: Yep, that’s it. It’s just really cheap.
Fat Pimply teenager: (double checks) Sorry Miss, its scanned up for .88c per litre off not .8c per litre off. Gee thanks for being so honest and pointing that out.
Me: No troubles mate ...

Secretly inside I’m fucking seething at the fact I just opened my trap and pointed out the puss face teenager’s mistake. I could have had fuel for like jack shit a litre. I ended up having to get a refund and re scan it all thru and pay again with only a pissy little discount that came to a total.....

$ 3.53 off.

Note to self. Keep mouth shut in situations where one is getting fuel for cheap as chips.

Too funny! That's what you get for being honest lol! Though I have no idea what that translates into US $ it still seems like a lot. But then you Aussie's tend to pay out the nose for stuff. Jodie has shared some of the book prices with me and it's totally outrageous! I can't even imagine paying over $20 for a book that we only pay $8 at the most for.

Ooo goodness!!! Sam you poor thang, that must've been a dissapointment. I've learned my lesson too. Sometimes I use coupons for cleaning products and I always get cashback. Y? I have no clue, it's only one store that, that happens. I've learned to keep my mouth shut. Lolz! Instead of paying 4bucks for Clorox I pay a 1buck. Y complain. It ain't my fault :P

Sooooo Lessoned Learned? I hope so Mate :P
