The first mistake would have been a plus for me while the second, a minus.

.

Read through and see how these experiences will change your life and mind forever.

.

After reading these experiences, you would either discover that youโ€™ve made losses or gains over the past few years.

.

I should write a book on mistakes that changed my life forever. Iโ€™m thinking.

.

Have you ever been to a mall before?

.

I bet you have.

.

Now, you know that when you buy something from the mall and pay either with your card, transfer or cash, they will give you a receipt right?

.

Okay, good.

.

I want to ask a question and I want you to give an honest answer.

.

Have you ever taken time to go through the receipts you always get? Or after you receive it, you just take it out and the security guy, stamps or punches a hole in it an you move?

.

Some of you would just even throw it away. Isnโ€™t it?

.

Now, read my experiences below to understand what I have been trying to tell you.

.

I picked my things and took them to the counter to meet this guy that seemed new to the job. I mean, I have never see him there since I started going there.

.

The young guy added everything I bought into the system and after giving me the price, I paid with my card and he gave me my receipt. Just before I got out, I looked at the list of things I bought and one of them had no price attached to it.

.

This means that, the guy had given the wrong price and I was to pay him for the one he didnโ€™t add. I wanted to go and maybe let him just lose that one and the management would deduct it from his salary or something. But I went back to tell him, and I paid him for that product.

.

.

2. On a Sunday evening again. Wait, I am serious. I am not making them up, I think itโ€™s coincidence and it just dawned on me as Iโ€™m writing this post. It happened on Sundays.

.

So, what happened was that, I did some hectic chores and was really hungry. So, I went out with my brothers to eat and then when we paid for the food with the card, we were issued a receipt.

.

Due to the past experience in number 1 above, I had become very serious with going through my receipts each time I get them.

.

I discovered that I was over billed and I took it back to them for corrections, they were able to refund me without arguments.

So, you see that it is very important that you check your receipts each time you make any purchase or transactions.

.

Before leaving there, take a look at that paper again.

.

Computers, make mistakes too.

.

I hope you find this post helpful.
