rip off

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
I just paid £1.40 for a snack size tub of kellogs corn flakes (size of variety pack boxes) No I only did this as there was nothing else in the mc that I like. Plus the shop is ages away and the vendors know this. I am so :mad: at them and me!

Rant over :p

Whats the worst you have been ripped of for, ripped someone else of or what you just generally think is a rip off?

:confused:

    Festival food and drink.

    "Oh, it is raining and cool - water £1.50"

    "Oh, today it is warm and sunny - water £4 maybe more if we don't like the look of you"

    I was ripped off the whole time whilst in Ibiza - it was expected cos everyone knows how expensive it is, but i've spent so much money on 'nothing'!

    Then you wait until your stop and ask for the change. If he won't give it you he has to give your your money back. Write to the company and ask them their policy, I have found this to be the policy of all bus companies where I live.
