So my 7 year old neighbor and I walked to the 7/11 to get slurpees (I'm 17 and I was babysitting her). When we get there, she can't decide which flavour and stuff she wants, and doesn't know if she'll like ones. I don't want to buy her something she won't eat, so I take an espresso cup (because it's small) and put about a tablespoon worth of the flavour she wants to try in it. She decides she likes it, so we fill a whole cup up for her and go to pay. Apparently the cashier was watching us 'test' the slurpee, because she charged me for TWO slurpees, and when I asked why, she said it's because of the one I "wasted". I only did this so that my neighbor would know what she was buying and couldn't decide. She's only 7, and it's not like we tested a bunch and left, she tasted like a tablespoon of one and then we ended up buying it. But she charged us for the one we bought, and for the "sip" she took. I paid double. It's not the money that bothers me obviously, it was $3.17 instead of $1.75. But I feel injusticed and that she was just being a b*tch for no reason. Should I email 7/11? Is this an injustice or was I wrong? I really don't know.

1) I was scared
2) she could barely understand English ( not to be rude it's just the facts)
3) I was with my 7 year old neighbor and there were tons of other parents with their kids in line who didn't see what actually happened, and now think I'm some kid who tried to steal from a gas station.

The person was definitely a full on bitch, but I don't think you should email 7/11 and if you did I don't think that it would do anything. I'm sure that technically you are only supposed to put icees in their cups and they might have strict protocols but she could have let you go and not have been an asshole. It's called being a good human being. That's like if you are buying something for $1.06, and you gave them a dollar and five cents and then they tell you to put the whole thing back. A good person would just be like "it's cool, go ahead". She must be a bitch or having a terrible day for not letting you slide like that like literally most other people would. Anyway I think if you contact the company they will side with what their protocols and procedures exactly are instead of what is good or ethical.1

Honestly some cashiers are just bitchy. What you should have done was used the same cup for the slurpee and she wouldn't have cared (they care about the charge of the cup.) if it were me and she was doing that I would've refused to buy the slurpee and would have left. Just realize that it isn't injustice, it's just a technical rule and some cashiers would be leniant while others would nickel and dime you1
