    A Dawning Realization Of One’s Dimness

    | St. Paul, MN, USA |

    Me: “Okay, that will be $5.93 for the cigarettes.”

    (The customer hands me a five dollar bill, puts the cigarettes in her pocket and starts walking off.)

    Me: “Excuse me, ma’am, but you didn’t give me enough money. You only gave me $5 and the total was $5.93.”

    Customer: “Yeah, I gave you five.” *points at the money*

    Me: “Yes, but the total is five dollars and ninety-three cents.”

    Customer: *angrily* “Yeah, I gave you five dollars!”

    Me: “It’s not enough. I need about a dollar more. Would you like to get something different or cheaper maybe?”

    Customer: “No, I want this one!”

    Me: “Well, I can’t sell these to you when you don’t have enough to pay for it.”

    Customer: “Well, what am I gonna do?”

    Me: “Go home and get more money?”

    (Her expression suddenly brightens.)

    Customer: “Oh! Yeah, okay! I’ll go do that I’ll be right back!” *gives cigarettes back and leaves cheerily*
