    Have you ever received more than your change at a store and just rushed out?
    and kept it knowingly?

    Even when you knew that you got more money by mistake?

    I always return it when I notice they have given me too much money back.

    No but something worse, my friend asked me to hold a large box of biscuits for them in a store, thinking they had already paid for it, I walked out so I could drink my beverage yikes

    I couldn't go back what if they didn't believe me! It was only about £5 though, I hope that store is doing okay sad

    No. Never. Ever since I was a child I've been returning change given to me in error.

    I can honestly say that I do not think I have.  I can remember times where I got the wrong change and said something.  I may have gotten the wrong amount and not known it at the time.

    I happened to be at a medical store just two days ago when the girl at the cash counter took the money I handed over to her and returned the same amount of the bill instead of the change.

    Obviously, there was some confusion at the counter, so instead of thirty plus, I received seventy plus in change. I was in a real hurry and left immediately but on realizing that an error had occurred, went back and returned the money.

    A few years ago too, I had done a similar thing though I had to go a little far to return the extra dress (not money) that I had received at a textile shop the previous day.

    If the employees lose money or things to customers this way, the money is generally deducted from their salary, so I would never think of keeping it once I realize that I have received more than what I had to get.
