You decide to get a cup of coffee.
Let's say the coffee costs $4.45. You pay with a $5.00. For those who don't feel like doing math, you're owed $0.55 change.
The barista gives you two nickles and a quarter. This amounts to $0.35.
Do you go back to the counter and request proper change?
What if the barista gives you two quarters and a dime? This amounts to $0.60. Would you go back and correct the issue?
Be honest. No judgement :)

One time my bank accidentally deposited $40,000 into my account. No one noticed and I could have gotten away with it. It sat in there a month. At first I thought it was a prank so I waited the first week. But by the second week it was still in there and nobody called me about it. I figured it was a mistake and that the bank would find it and fix it. Going into the fourth week it was still there. A few days into the 4th week I'd called the bank and asked them to tell me how much was in my account. They told me I had $46,000 and some odd change and asked if I needed a transfer or anything. I was completely shocked that not one person at the bank noticed that kind of money missing. I waited 2 more days after that and told them about the mistake and how I thought they were fucking with me. The gave me $100 dollars for telling them about the mix up.0

I would go back regardless but, that's why I make sure I'm given correct change when they first hand it to me. One time I was getting coffee and it was a new person in training. She under-charged me for the coffee (although I didn't realize that until after the owner noticed and mentioned it). At first he told me to forget about it since it was their mistake but I went back anyway and paid the extra $.70. I prefer being honest when it comes to money, even if it's not a high amount.2
