Bought a Times there yesterday for 3.25, gave the assistant a 4 euro note (I had no coins whatsoever), and was given 75c change.
When I asked for the other euro her English vanished, then the fliuent in English manager said that there was no 5 euro note in the till. I persisted, they shrugged, I gave up.
It's only a euro, and if it had been a simple error then no problem. But it is SO obvious that they are ripping off foreigners buying newspapers there by short-changing that I want to complain about them - would the tourist office take any notice?
This is the first such incident in 5 years of coming to VFSM, but it has really annoyed me.
