Declining a request for a shopping bag, he is heard casually responding to the surprised cashier. “That’s the price, and I’m paying for it,” he can be heard saying.

He adds: “I’m in a hurry.”

After a back and forth with the cashier, who then disappeared for 15 minutes to speak to her supervisor, the man was given the chicken for free! His till slip, however, reveals a transaction of him paying 20 cents for an eight cents pack of chicken. Olivier was given his 20 cents back.

After leaving the store, Olivier says into the camer: “I just want to remind you guys. The customer is always right” .

He added: “That pack of chicken was over R200. They messed up.”

Speaking exclusively to The South African, Oliver defended his actions.

“The cashier told me that it had never happened before. The supervisor said there was nothing they could do. So they gave it to me for free.

He added: “I’m not stealing.”
