|I'm not just weaboo trash I like Greek mythology too|
Or one at least.
Today I went to a comic store and was like, 'hey I should buy more random anime figure grab boxes, I won’t get a double again' (I don't learn, although I haven't gotten a double with the attack on titan ones!)
I grab two of the sailor moon boxes, and when the guy at the counter checks me out says
"That’ll be $101.53!"
And me thinking it was a joke I happily hand him my card like whatever I know they're under $10. My card is swiped and I sign. Then after I signed I’m prompted for whether or not I want a receipt, I’m about to select no when I see the total at the top, '$101.53' immediately I panic,
"Wait was that REALLY $101?!"
“Yeah, we’re you not ok with that?”
Now I know things can be expensive at comic stores, especially anime crap, but did he seriously ask me if I didn’t want to pay over 100 dollars for 2 measly figures? He must have thought I was either stupid or had a shit ton of money to burn
I do not when I just handed him my card without a second thought, but seriously I’m a cashier and when something rings up at an obscene price I’ll ASK the customer if that was correct, because usually when that sort of stuff happens, whatever it is its either really high quality, or more often than not, wrong.
They were really nice about it though and the matter was cleared up, the figures were put in the system as something else causing the mix up and I got my money back, along with a refund and discount on the correct purchase. So the moral of this story besides the fact that I’ll just fork over money without questioning the price, is that you should really pay attention to how much you’re spending. Because you might just end up paying an outrageous amount of money without even realizing it.
