SINGAPORE: A Singaporean is drawing widespread praise online for her integrity after she pointed out to an Hai Di Lao outlet staff that she was mistakenly charged S$1.05 for a S$105 meal.
The customer, TikTok user Jesslyne Lee, shared her experience at the hotpot restaurant at Northpoint City in a short video on Monday (May 22). Revealing that the incident took place on 13 May, Jesslyne recounted that she initially paid just S$1.05 but upon realizing the error, she promptly returned to the outlet to settle the outstanding balance.
She added that the cashier was extremely relieved that she returned to pay the correct sum and told her that the money would have been deducted from her salary if Jesslyne had not returned.
Jesslyne also shared that the cashier had processed her order while logged into a colleague’s account, which could have also implicated the colleague. However, Jesslyne’s swift action and honesty averted potential complications for both employees.
Lucky day y’all
In a comment, Jesslyne said that the restaurant gave her a discount voucher as a token of gratitude and warmly welcomed her to revisit their outlet.
The video quickly gained traction, amassing over 120,000 views. Netizens flooded the comments section, praising Jesslyne for her exemplary honesty and lauding her for “restoring faith in humanity” with her actions.
Some individuals also admitted that they may not have acted with the same integrity and returned to the restaurant to rectify the payment discrepancy.
