Yesterday I picked up a couple of things in my local grocery store. When I emptied the bag, I saw something I had not picked out -- a snack sized bag of crackers. I checked the receipt and saw that it also was not charged. Thinking it must have been left in my bag by mistake, I brought it back to the store. The store clerk was a bit bemused at this because the bags were intended to be put in as free samples. She said I was the eighth person shopper to bring it back. The good news is that the shoppers in my neighborhood are quite scrupulous about returning products that they believe were added on in error. The bad news is that the store did not take that into account. Had they done so, the baggers or cashiers should have been instructed to say that they were giving out these free samples.
