Can you hear that beep?

We all know we should watch the scanner at the supermarket, but do you listen to it too?  Each time an item is scanned the scanner beeps. But today's scanners are so sensitive that it only takes a simple wrist movement while scanning for you to be charged twice or even three times.  If you are buying multiples of items, listen, count and watch carefully. Mistakes are easy to make and quite common. And watch the cashier if he keys in the number of items or hits the button manually, it's easy to miscount.  And last, but not least, watch if he then lifts them over the scanner. Too low and you could be charged again!
