That is so true. Had a similar experience. Handed clerk my winning ticket, knowing fully well I won the whopping sum of $12 bucks! She handed me $3.00 instead. Well, how low can she go!
Another time, I bought $5.00 worth of tickets and handed the clerk $20.00. He hastily gave me the tickets and $10.00 change. He, faster than a speeding bullet, left the counter and pretended to mop the floor. I called him back and told him to give me the right change. He feigned ignorance! Wow, how cheap can one get.
It so happened that these 2 clerks come from the same nationality. And that is why I am getting more and more prejudiced - not because of the color of their skin, but because of their lack of integrity. Call me irrational, but that's how stereotypes develop. Needless to say, I never went to those stores again.
