Changing The World For The Worse

, , , | Right | November 18, 2019

(I work as a cashier at a fast food restaurant in the middle of my city. These past few weeks, a carnival has been set up in the centre just across the street from the restaurant. Seeing as the carnival only takes small bills, this exchange will happen several times a day:)

Me: “How can I help you?”

Customer: “Yeah, can you exchange this into small bills for me?” *holds up a fifty-euro bill*

Me: “Oh, no, sorry. I’m not allowed to make exchanges, and I don’t have enough bills in my till to make that exchange, anyway.”

Customer: *thinking he’s being clever* “Can I have one hamburger?” *cheapest item on our menu, €1.20*

Me: *sighing a bit because honestly, this isn’t clever and mostly annoying* “Sure, that’ll be €1.20, please.”

Customer: *pays with the fifty-euro bill he’s still holding, smirking*

(As a side note, there is a bank situated in the centre of the carnival that would definitely be able to do all the aforementioned without having to call for more cash every two minutes.)
