(I am the dumb customer this time. I was in middle school or so, and had just started babysitting for my mom’s theater group when I’d decided I needed a new charger and headphones for my iPod at the time. This is one of the first few times I’d ever bought something for myself. My mom had gone into the store to keep me from overspending.)

Associate: “Okay, and will that be everything for you today?”

Me: “Yes, please.”

Associate: “Great! That’ll be $40.56”

Me: *hands the associate $30 because I’m just not paying that much attention; I was very nervous at the time)*

Associate: “Um. The total is $40.56”

Me: *still not thinking and nervous* “Yeah.”

Mom: “Honey, give her the other $20. You only gave her $30.”

Me: “What?” *realizing and turning bright red* “Oh! I’m so sorry!” *hands over the other $20*

(Thank you, patient associate, for letting me be a space cadet!)
