I just don't get it. Whatever happen to honesty? I have had stores not charge me enough for an item and if I catch it at the store, I bring it to their attention. If I was not paying attention when it was being rung up and only discovered the error when I got home, I would take it back and let them know. At the same time, when they overcharge, I do not hesitate to let them know.

ATM gives out too much money
MANSFIELD, La. (AP) -- An ATM at a northwest Louisiana truck stop gave out $20 bills instead of $5s, but authorities say they know who took the extra $7,000 the machine spit out and plan to track them down.
DeSoto Parish sheriff's Lt. Toni Morris said the automated teller machine has records showing 26 people who received the extra cash during five days in late June and early July.
Annette Parker, a supervisor at Eagle's Truck Stop, said she unplugged the machine after overhearing conversations about the excess payments.
"The next morning when we had come back in, someone had plugged it back up," she said.
Morris said someone who did not work at the truck stop may have rigged the machine, which keeps records of when the money was taken and by whom.
Morris said charges could be brought against the people who got more money than they were debited for.
Yes - this has happened to me on several occasions and I did not hesitate for a single second about whether to keep the extra $ or not.
Just goes to show you how parents are really lacking in their parenting job of instilling in their children truth, honesty, compassion, responsibility, self control, faith in a higher being and love.
