    (An elderly woman is picking up some photos. She is wearing extremely thick glasses but still can’t seem to see very well. She’s squinting at the pricing sign on the wall.)

    Customer: “What’s that big sign say?”

    Me: “It’s a list of our prices for different sized photos.”

    (I read out the prices.)

    Me: “Here are your pictures. It comes to [price].”

    Customer: “Oh, thank you.”

    (She pulls out her wallet and holds it inches away from her eyes as she tries to find the right money.)

    Customer: “Is this bill a five or a ten?”

    Me: “That’s a five.”

    Customer: “Okay.”

    (She puts the bill on the counter and then pours some coins into her hand. After a few seconds of trying to see the coins, she holds her hand out to me.)

    Customer: “Would you mind counting the change out for me? The coins are so small!”

    Me: “No problem.” *counts change* “Have a good day.”

    (She pulls a set of car keys out of her pocket and walks out the door, leaving me and one of my co-workers with our mouths open.)
