A Cent-less Cycle

| Working | October 22, 2013

(I am returning an item.)

Employee: “All right, you’ll be getting $4.24 back—oh no, I don’t have any pennies. Do you have any change?”

Me: “I don’t, sorry.”

Employee: “That’s okay. Here’s $4.25. Keep the extra cent.”

(I walk around the store, find something else I want, and head to the checkout. The employee at the cash register is the same one who takes my return earlier.)

Employee: “All right, that’ll be $4.24.”

(I give the employee back the $4.25 she gave me earlier.)

Me: “Keep the extra cent.”

Employee: “Thanks!”
