can they do this?
On Friday, I ordered lunch for myself and a coworker and put it on my credit card. The guy taking my order told me that it would be $22.50. When he ran my card through, he accidentally typed in $2.25 instead of $22.50. This was what was on my receipt when the delivery guy came and that is what I signed for. Today, I checked my credit card statement online, and it showed that they had debited my account for the $22.50 plus tip. Considering this is the amount I was supposed to pay, that's fine. I'm just a little surprised/confused as to why they debited this amount after I had already signed the receipt. I thought that after a customer signs for something, the price can't be changed, and if the store/establishment marks the price down wrong, then they are obligated to give you the lower price. Any thoughts?
