D'you want to think about that?

The price of milk rose on campus recently, but the barcode readers in Spar have yet to be adjusted.  If one buys a pint, the till says 34p, but the cashier knows to ask for 35p.  If one buys a couple of items, the cashier doesn't think to add on the extra penny, so the old price stands.

Who's the fool: the Spar manager, who loses a penny on each transaction, or the customer who buys more that she would otherwise, just to feel smug about 'saving' an illicit penny?

Names omitted to protect the gullible.
