i go to a low income district mechanic.
mechanic: that’ll be $327.65. just $300 is fine, though.
me: okay. here’s 350.
mechanic: i will get you change
me: okay. here’s 5 in change.
mechanic: ?
me: we’re all good now?
mechanic: . . . thank you.
me: not really, many thanks!

i’m an engineer. i make enough money to pretend to be bad at math. i let him know it’s pretending because sometimes i leave my car for him to work on. i have a bicycle worth more than some cars strapped to it, when i ride off.
p.s. ‘not really’ isn’t translatable into english. it actually means something like ‘nonsense’ but the literal translation is ‘it wont’.
