Reviewing my evening, I realized that I spent an awful lot of $$ on a slice of quiche and a glass of wine.
Of course I didn’t have the receipt to double check the list of charges. I’m going to throw it out anyway, so why not have them?
(click on the bold-faced vocab words:))
My late night detective work (i.e. pulling up the menu on my mac) made me realize they mistakenly charged me for three glasses!!
Can’t do anything about it now….
But from this day forward, I pledge to…
– review my bill before paying
– count my change (if dealing in cash)
– keep my receipt (crucial for credit card purchases)
– shred the receipt only months later.
