A Durban woman was shocked after realising she bought steak and kidney pies worth R495.

Detailing the incident on her Facebook page, Kajal Raman says sshe went to Pick n Pay on Tuesday and was shocked when he saw her till slip after purchasing her goodies.

Raman bought 16 items that amounted to a total of over R500, whereas the total cost should have been less than R200. This is because of the pies that cost R495.

The price sticker attached to the pie shows that the R495 price is for 22 items (pies), which is what confused a lot of people under the comments section as to how did the store allow such an incident to happen as she clearly did not buy twenty-two pies.

“Went to Pick n Pay this morning, and I was shocked when I saw my till slip. Then I got into the car, and my mind was saying something's not right with the till slip. So I took the pies out from the packet just to double-check and was shocked to see the price. I went to the shop, and they gave me my money back. As for the person that was on that till, there was no way around. So people, please watch your till slips on the price of the stuff that you buy,” wrote Raman.

Facebook users quickly commented on how this is all confusing and that she did a good job by checking.

“What if the pie makes you age backwards, and the price was actually a bargain?” commented one user.

“But how did you pay R600 cash for less than R200 worth of goods in your basket and not think anything of it immediately? I would not blame the cashier in this case – it's the person who price tagged that pie,” wrote another user.

“But you said pies …The price tag clearly shows 22 items and the price of the pies. Plus you got a discount on the pies. How do you explain that?” questioned a third.

We have sent comment requests to Pick n Pay and at the time of publishing, there has been no response.
