Then he'd have to check it to ensure it's not one of the many fakes available

This is pretty usual in any small/big shops around the city, but on the toll ? maybe they can give us petrol in small containers or a cleaning cloth or something useful for the car, would be a lot more useful than being forced to take cheap chocolate. I do like the idea of collecting these things & paying for the return toll. cool.

It's a simple case of fooling people...... whole sale rate for such things is not Rs2/-or what ever the price of the chocolate, but lower than the MRP [printed on it] they tend to make a profit on this by giving out chocolates rather than change. So if they increase the toll at least your paying the what is the correct amount at not being cheated in give extra than the printed amount.when theere are thousands of vehicle driving up/down the expressway that it's nothing but cheating in a more civilized manner.

There is an alternative. Make sure you give exact change! Then you should have nothing to complain about.

Hey guys, don't take the Perk gift as cheating. I am sure it brings a smile to your face and the next time I was happy to receive a Perk because I was hungry and that small bite helped. Whats the harm?

I think its a good move than giving some shady unbranded stuff saying its Rs2/-. Also its unlike the typical Bata style Rs 199.95 where they dont give anything at all !!After all no one would have complained if they made it 120. Atleast they are giving a nice perk instead!!.

Would surely love to see the reaction when someone gives it back
