am always the tool who points out to the bar/shop/restaurant that they have undercharged. much to my friends' collective disgust. i once took 500quid back to the bank because the cashier had given me too much cash. i blame my mother for the utter humiliation she put me through when i stole a lipstick aged about 7 (and it was the manky tester one, i was never going to be a master criminal).

this qotw is making me realise i am even less cool and rebellious than i thought. which was pretty warm and law-abiding in the first place. great, thanks for that.

Good for you Rachel
Apart from the part where you could have kept £500 for your very own. Numpty.

well that was what i thought
i know they make them account for missing money, so how could you enjoy spending it under those circumstances? she was literally on the verge of tears, though. she kept saying, "i can't believe you brought it back." most embarrassing, esp as i am sure half the people in the bank were thinking, "tool".

I am also rather like this...

I'm that tool too
When I was a poor backpacker in Melbourne, I was paid approximately £500 too much for a week's work, about a week before leaving the country. I phoned the temp agency and pointed out the mistake - they were very grateful, and gave me a case of beer as a thank you. Mmm, beer.
