    Default 200 peso - 119 peso = 1881 peso ???

    i had a question, when paying 200 peso for something that costs 119 peso are you supposed to get 1881 peso back???

    well, it happened today to me in la sirena, girl had the time of her life talking to her co-workers, she made me think i was bothering her.

    i gave her the 200 bill, i was minding my bb and then she wrote that i gave 2000 and man..

    but what would you do?

    a) keep the money also like i did

    b) let her know that she made a mistake and be honest

    I had this happen to me once at the Pharmacy.. I am ususally completely honest and would return the money but in my case I think she was talking on her cell phone or something.. so yeah, if she was talking to her co workers and not paying attention to you .. then you did the right thing in keeping the money. Her drawer will come up short and she will soon enough figure out to pay attention. I kept the overage too.. first time I had EVER done that!

    If I notice at the time I tell them and give it back but if they were being rude and not paying attention I am not sure what I would do, depends on my mood I guess?!

    i would've gave the money back if I knew before I left. It's way too much money for Dominicana. It's likely more then week pay. She will either get fired or she will not be able to get hair done, buy phone card and pay off colmador next entire week. It's not like we are in US where people make more then one bill note per week.

    The difference will be deducted from her wages. Looks like that mistake could have cost her over a weeks pay

    Just the opposite happened to me at Supermercado National.
    I gave the girl 2,000 pesos, and she gave me the change for 200 pesos.
    She too was talking to, and looking at, the next cashier.
    I told her it was 2,000 not 200.
    She sais that I was WRONG!
    We called the supervisor, who said I should step aside, and let the people waitingin line check out, and THEN, she would close the register and make a count.
    I said, NO, I ain't moving!
    To make a long story short, I Was RIGHT, it was 2,000 pesos, NOT 200 pesos.
    She handed me the correct change.
    I asked if she wanted to say anything to me????
    "No WHY"? she asked.
    I said,.."How about,"Lo Siento"?????
    KEEP THE MONEY!!!!!!!
    Do you think she would have returned the overage to you?????

    Lesson I learned is never trust a DR1 poster.

    Without a doubt, the money should have been given back to the cashier.

    In exchanging money once at the money exchange I was given $8,000 pesos too much even though it was counted by both clerks. The error was because the amount to me was supposed to be $10,800 and both of them took it as $18,800. It took awhile for me to get them to realize their mistake. Both of them were really happy that I returned the money to them.
