I went to a shop yesterday. I was on the queue to pay when I saw a girl in front of me take out a coupon. I thought to myself, "I could have looked online and printed out a coupon before I came shopping". I told the cashier I "forgot" to bring the coupon with me. She asked me what the coupon looked like and I could answer that because I had seen the other girl's coupon. She said no problem, and took the % off. She also said "It's fine, we don't really need the physical coupon". Is it cheating? I don't really feel bad. I just think that "there is no harm in asking". But maybe I should have just said I don't have a coupon but can I still get a discount? Would she have laughed to my face then?
Is it a bad thing?
