I weep for America's future...

Forgot to take food to work with me, so I ran out to get dinner yesterday. My total was $6.50. I gave the cashier a quarter, 2 dimes, and a nickel for the change…and had this conversation:

Cashier: The change is 50 cents.

Me: That’s what I gave you.

Cashier: No, you need another quarter.

Me: Um, could you count the change I gave you again?

Cashier: You’re a quarter short.

Me: I gave you a quarter, 2 dimes, and a nickel.

Cashier: *looking at change* Ohhhhhh, sorry! *She then proceeds to try to give me back the nickel.*

Me: *dumbfounded*

Manager: (who had walked up when she heard the debate) Jesus Christ…no wonder your drawer keeps coming up wrong!

  1. I too weep for America's future. Holy crap. I have been in the restaurant industry as a server for YEARS, and I can say about 90% of my colleagues cannot figure out how to make accurate change without the assistance of a computer to do the calculation for them.

    What about the times you are at a convenience store, and the total amounts to $10.53 and you hand over $21.03... YES, GIVE ME $10.50 BACK YOU FRIGGIN IDIOT!!
