Ive and my room mate has been screwed over by walmart. Charged twice for single purchases. Charged more than the sticker on the shelf said. Then once in a while purchased something with an expiration date that had passed.

Now at one of my old jobs was a food truck that came by and had a guy and his wife who spoke little engrish. Every day his prices changed. Some days we got back more in change than you handed him. Some days we told him to keep the change.

I was in Uganda a few months back and you would not believe how poor the math is there. It was almost a daily occurance that someone I dealt with would give me back completely wrong change. On more than one occasion I received back more than I had payed by double. Honest mistakes happen allot I think, especially in the undereducated.

I can believe it.

I agree with mistakes happening a lot, or at least I don't want to believe there are dishonest people everywhere.

I fear dealing with money in another country myself. I like to think the American money is pretty straight forward, but Ive seen people too have problems and some of them are Americans from birth by several generations.
