Does that 2000 riel add up?

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Does that 2000 riel add up?

Post by Retardedwaitress » Fri Aug 19, 2016 12:39 pm

That 2000 riel the moto overcharged you ?
That 2000 riel the market overcharged you for fruit and veges?
That 2000 riel the noodle vender short changed you when you were too hungver to realise?
To 2000 they "accidently" added onto your breakfast bill?
The 2000 riel you gave the begger who is really a scammer?

I start being careful with money as it seems as soon as your generous people are there to cheat ,rob and steal from you.

A ride on a moto is $1 plus - if it's dark or wet - another 2,000 R.

Easy!

If the price is not set then the fact that you may have paid 2000 riel more than someone else is not "overcharging."
