Arbys #1592 Micro Scam.. what sized Combo did you really pay for? Aurora Colorado
I call these type of hustles "Micro scams". Over the years I have noticed that when ordering a combo meal at fast food restaurants, the person taking your order will ask "Medium or Large"…implying that those are your only two choices. I began asking where is the "small" (default) option? While it is true that some fast food establishments don't have a "small" offering in their combos, many do but fail to mention it in hope that you just answer quickly back with one of the options presented. Although I have noticed this little pycological trick for years, the last straw (no pun intended) came when I was at Arby's yesterday and was overcharged for 2 combo meals. I deciphered the receipt and found I was overcharged $1.20 for two meals. I asked the clerk why my $6.59 meal came to $7.19 ..she said that I ordered Medium, and I stated that that was the lowest option given, but I would have preferred small since the "upsize" only increased my drink cup size, which I can get free refills anyway.
