I am waitress at my parent’s restaurant. Out on the street you would need to pay for parking and we usually get a lot of people in need of change for the parking meters. The following happens when a man comes inside to change some nickles for a quarter.

Man: “Hello miss, Can I get a quarter for these?”
He hands them to me and for some reason I hear dollar instead of quarter. I proceed to open the cash register getting a dollar out and then finally realize he’s given me five nickles, I just assumed he accidentally gave me nickles instead of quarters.
Me: Umm.. Sorry these are nickles.
Man: Yeah i need a quarter (starting to get confused).
Me: (slowly realizing) OH! *facepalm* I heard dollar instead. (giving him the quarter)
Man: I wish it worked like that, but sadly, it doesn’t.
