## Question:

Hello,

After I came home today from a local grocery store and deli, I noticed that the cashier may have given me an extra change of 50 cents. I didn't notice until I got home because I thought the calculations were correct. The cashier said the total was \$2.50. It also said so on the cash register. I handed him \$3. I would expect 50 cents back and that was what he gave me. However, I know that one of the items was \$1.75, and I'm not exactly sure about the other item, but I'm pretty sure it was \$1 or \$1.25 (at least \$1). If the second item was \$1.25, then \$1.75 + \$1.25 is \$3 and I wouldn't have gotten any change at all. If the second item was \$1, then \$1.75 + \$1 would be \$2 and I would have gotten \$1 for change.

I'm pretty confused and I don't know who the 50 cents should go to or where the 50 cents came from the calculation. If I had known about this when I was at the store, I would have asked the cashier about this, but unfortunately, I only realized when I got home. What should I do?

Is this technically stealing, by definition? Because I think the definition of stealing is taking something that doesn't belong to you, right? I didn't intend to do anything wrong, as I only realized when I got home, so is this technically "stealing"? Thanks!
