The cashier serving at a Tzen's Mochi store at a freeway rest stop in Su'ao, Yilan County, sold three mochi — sweet sticky rice balls — with peanut filling for NT$54 at 3:57 p.m. on Sunday, but mistakenly issued the invoice for NT$4 million and five dollars, the company said on Tuesday.
Upon discovering the mistake, the cashier burst into tears and hoped in desperation that the invoice could be retrieved, said Chang Shu-hua (張淑華), an operational executive at Tzen's Mochi, because the invoice for NT$4 million and five dollars means it would cost the company nearly NT$200,000 in business tax if the mistake went unreported.
Although it has sought assistance from the national freeway police, the company hopes the customer, who was described as a woman dressed in red based on CCTV footage, will return the mistaken invoice with the serial number GY19229840 so that the mistake can be rectified, Chang said. [FULL STORY]
