Oranges and the Extra $2

Had an odd experience. At one store on Tuesday I bought some oranges and then noticed that they were supposed to be $2 more. Instead of making a decision, he called the produce person so I waited for that, twonie in hand, wondering if they were going to want the extra $2.  After he did so and the produce person walked away, he went to dealing with other customers, not indicating if the extra $2 was wanted.  So I casually wandered to the exit, trying to be in his line of vision in case he wanted me to stay.  I figured that I had been honest and had already waited for a bit, and if they weren’t going to make a decision about the $2 one way or the other, I might as well make it myself in my favour.
