I forgot to bring my lunch to work today, so had to pop out to the local shop to get some. My food cost £2.19, so at the till I handed over £2.20 and received 81p in change! I told the assistant he’d given me too much and handed back the 80p. He told me I’d given him £3 and tried to give me the 80p back. No I said, I gave £2.20 and gave the money back, which he reluctantly accepted.

His reaction and the look on his face said that he thought I was mad in giving the money back! He was most insistent that I was wrong. The odd thing was that I was getting the feeling that he and the other people in the queue were thinking that I was wrong in giving the money back!
