I just don't get why it's ok for large corporations and universities to make mistakes and don't have to eat them.

Sure doesn't work that way for the average joe. You screw up you pay dearly, usually more than the original mistake. It's like going to the bank and saying "I didn't mean to spend that much money, now refund those fees or I'm taking you to court" It just stinks.

Just like the Best Buy screw up where they sold HDTV's for $19.99 instead of $1999.99. It might be ok if it worked that way for all of us, but it only seems to work for those who have an army of lawyers at their disposal.

Basically, yeah. Again, I think the girl's a bitch and anyone with a decent amout of humanity WOULD return the money..but that said, ND fuged up. Big time. It was their mistake and they should have to get over it. Fire the accountant responsible and make sure it never happens again.

I I paid a $500 bill but wrote the check for $600 I would expect the company to credit me the $100 or send it back. Which is how it works with most anycompany you deal with.

The same should be true in reverse.

Awesome reasoning....by that token, I bet the federal govt doesn't need my 8K in income taxes, so I'll just skip filing next year. Shouldn't be a problem...right?

Or...a few years ago, ADP screwed up and did double paycheck deposits for everyone in our department. Boy, all of us we really screwed up not withdrawing that money before they could take it back!

BTW - Tuition for undergrads is something like 38K (48K with housing).

The devil really is in the details on this one, I see your point Shinner, but if she REALLY did try to alert them and they ignored her then it's their loss.

We here on the huddle will most likely never know the real truth, so

fug OFF THE LOT OF YA!
