A few years ago, I made a withdrawal from my bank account and noticed (after I already got home) that they gave me $15.00 too much...I called the bank and returned the money.
And don’t think that the girl who made the error will get a slap on the wrist, she will more likely than not get fired. I worked with a girl that made a similar mistake but with less than $1300 involved and they absolutely fired her butt. With a company like Macy''s they probably have 15 people lined up to take her position.

DH knew it was wrong, while it was taking place. Then, remarkably, tried to return the earrings to get a better pair.
Now that I''ve thought about it a little more, I think you''re probably right.Date: 9/28/2006 6:29:17 PM
I''m calling BS on this.
Macy''s does not operate the jewelry counters in its stores, so no one ''from corporate'' would have come down to approve the sale. Those counters are rented and operated by Finlay Fine Jewelry, which runs about 1000 similar counters in most big department stores. Macy''s just collects the rent.
