I went shopping today to get a discount on some Christmas cards for next year. My total purchase came to $12.02. I handed the clerk a $20 bill. As is common these days, the register indicated my change was $7.98. The clerk took out of the draw a $5 bill and 2 ones, he then looked at the register again and started to count out the 98 cents. Less than half way through, he put the loose change back and pulled out another dollar bill and gave me $8 in change for my purchase. I can only assume, he was a little lazy and didn’t want to be bothered to count the 98 cents in change. I didn’t say anything because I knew he knew exactly how much I was to get back as he looked at the register several times to see what my change was. Now that I am home, I am feeling a little guilty because I accepted more change than I should have. Do I need to confess this the next time I go to confession?
Thank you and God Bless,
