she left the store.
what in the world is so hard about checking your own ticket?
I agree, Emily. Maybe I'm not reading this story correctly, but I thought that's what she did and then the clerk told her she was wrong. Leaving the store was probably not a good idea, and she should have asked for her ticket back right away. Obviously, since she returned to complain and the police got involved, there must be something missing from this article. People always say it's best to get tickets at a local convenience store, but this is one reason I prefer a place like Publix. If you have a problem with the clerk or cashier, there's always an assistant manager or manager around.
I had a similar experience at a Sunoco station when I bought a Grouper and only got 5 slips. I wouldn't leave the store, but had no idea what to do. I finally found it in back of the terminal, so I think it was an honest mistake on her part. It had apparently shot out and fallen behind, but I kept saying "I'm supposed to have 6 tickets and I only have 5." She just shrugged. No manager was around and the other customers were getting angry at me for making a big deal out of a missing ticket. I left this out of my last comment for the sake of brevity. Seriously, any comments on what I could have done?
