Here's what happens:
1. While making a gesture with her hands, the cashier accidentally waved the sugar over the electronic eye, which registered the price.
2. Unaware that the item had already been added to the tally, she rang it up a second time.
3. Bottom line: We were hit twice for a single item.
"I can't tell you how many times I've caught them doing that," my husband says of the double-scanning cashiers. "They don't do it on purpose. But it does happen a lot."
Everyone makes mistakes: People are busy; stores are crowded; mistakes happen. It's our job to watch the tape.
It's another entry for my $2 a Day Savings Challenge.
