Very often, we encountered the situation where offer items and non-offer items were place together on the supermarket shelves. Sometimes, their illegible handwriting was so confusing that you can't even read what was written! I was in a certain supermarket on 19th July and overheard a woman complaining bitterly about the ice cream on offer.
She took the ice cream from this ice box only to find that they were not for 99 cents. Although 99 cents were written everywhere! The attendance said that the offer item had been sold out!
I was in Australia many years ago. I picked a piece of merchandise from a basket for a certain amount. On check out, I found that the item was actually of a different price. I just said "I thought this item is for $xxx?". The cashier asked where I got it and without a second question, she clocked in the amount displayed. I later found that the item was supposed to be from a higher priced basket!
In Malaysia, our consumer's right in this case seem to be non existence or am I just being ignorant?
Note: From the comments from readers, it seems that we didn't stand up fopr our right! So, dear reader, please be assertive next time. Don't say "never mind". Make a fuss out of it if you are right!
