Okay, tell me if I am being a jerk and assuming the worst of people...|
So, I went to this take out place and ordered lunch. They made it and I picked it up and took it home. I payed by credit card. The total on the receipt I signed was $10.14. I didn't leave a tip since it was a take out order. I just marked a line like so ---- through the tip line and put down my final total as $10.14 and signed it.
Cut to my credit card statement. On it, for the place I ordered lunch from, was $14.14. Apparently, I had given the woman a $4 tip, which I didn't. Did she purposefully steal from me or was it a mistake?
So should I go back with my copy of the receipt and my statement and get my $4 back? Should I take a moral stand because it's wrong to steal? $4 is two gallons of gas! Or should I let it go since she might have kids, ferrets or a burgeoning drug habit?
