    Me: “Hi, I’d like a small chai latte with soy, please.”

    Cashier: “Okay.” *enters order* “And what size did you want? Oh, you said small?”

    Me: “Yes, please.”

    (She rings me up and hands me my receipt. I double-check it to make sure she got it right, and see that in addition to the soy, I’ve been charged $1 extra to add a shot I didn’t ask for.)

    Me: “Excuse me, but it says I was charged for a shot.”

    Cashier: “Oh, well… I accidentally rang it up as a chai instead of a chai latte.”

    Me: “Okay…”

    Cashier: “So… sorry about that.”

    (The cashier looks around awkwardly, and then grabs a barista and shows her my receipt, whispering to her.)

    Barista: “Did she order a shot?”

    Cashier: “No.”

    Barista: *to me* “Sorry about that.”

    Me: *waits*

    Barista: “…Did you want that dollar back?”

    Me: “Um, yes?!”
