Would you go back for 6 cents?

The other day hubby and I were grocery shopping and bought a couple of bags (at our grocery store you have to pay for the bags you use - 6 cents for paper, 10 for plastic). I noticed that the checkout lady had only charged us for one bag and not the other. Hubby and I disagreed on whether or not to go back and pay for the bag. He contended that it was only a few cents and since it was such a small amount it didn't matter but I felt guilty so I went back and gave her the 6 cents.
What would you have done in my situation?

  • We hadn't left the parking lot yet so no gas wasted.

  • Just curious but where do you live that you have to pay for bags? We live in NY and we take a ton of extra bags and they don't care, because we use them as garbage bags. I would NOT go back. For what you pay for groceries, I think the whole "paying for bags" thing is a scam by the store to make extra $. I would NOT shop there.

  • I would have told them the next time I was in the store, and paid. I wouldn't unload the boys, trek them across the parking lot and into the store, back out and into the car for 6 cents.
