Shopping for groceries today at Tesco/Lotus. Told the cashier “Pay in Thai Baht”. Did she listen? No, of course not. She ran the charge as a DCC transaction.
The first choice was voided: $84.09USD. Then (with help from two managers), she ran the correct transaction of $81.25USD.
I usually write that “I saved …. ” — but what I should write is “I PREVENTED THEM FROM RIPPING ME OFF FOR $2.84USD”.
