    Overcharged for Pie (A Hot Dog is involved in this story) & Pint AGAIN


    0 Not allowed!
    Being superstitious I always use the same till in the Upper East to get my fix of burger and pint. I've complained on here before about being overcharged and for the Boro game it happened again. Pint, Burger & Crisps clearly marked as £9 but charged £9.30. I didn't say anything as I got hounded last time. But last night AGAIN. Hot Dog (all other food gone by 7:15) and Pint clearly marked above my head as £8 but charged £8.20 This time I questioned it and the reply was 'the till says £8.20 and that is what I have to charge'. Overcharging is illegal, especially when they have been informed about it on numerous occasions. Yes it is only 20p and I can survive without it, but principles!
    Cant be bothered to talk football today, but still confident of a winning season.

      You seem confused - you've started a thread about a pie and a pint yet go on to talk about a hot dog.

      No cheese and onion pasties last night incidentally, replaced by the far better spinach, ricotta and mushroom pie.

      "including false or deceptive messages"

      If you advertise a product as £9.00 but charge more, that's false advertising.

      Is this permanent ? If so, I might go with an empty tum on Friday ?

      Pretty rubbish superstition to be honest, if you end up getting overcharged every time. Ever thought about trying another till?

      I had this argument with Tesco once and they said something like it is an offer to contract or something similar and therefore not illegal. I'm not a lawyer so wouldn't know..just curious
