Default It didn't scan so it must be free.

The title says it all. The bane of cashiers everywhere.

Today at the grocery store I bought a shrink wrapped sweet potato with a bar code. The bar code would not scan, and the cashier just passed it on to be bagged.

When I asked about it not scanning, she said they were told to not worry with it and just give it to the customer.

Thus a classic annoyance has become fact.
