A Cent-less Cycle

| York, PA, USA | 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!”

Mom’s Soup Is Gruel-ling

| USA | Related | October 22, 2013

(My family and I are at a restaurant. I’m six.)

Waitress: “And what’ll you all have?”

Mom: “I’ll have the soup.”

Me: “Yuck, soup. Gross. I’ll have the burger.”

(Our meals arrive.)

Mom: “Honey, do you want to try some of my soup?”

Me: “No, I don’t like soup!”

Mom: *coaxingly* “Come on, try a little.”

Me: “No!”

(My mom keeps pressing me until finally I agree. It does smell delicious. When I do, it is the most wonderful thing I’ve tasted in a long time.)

Me: “Mmmm!”

Mom: *smugly* “See? You have to try new things!”

Me: “But, Mom, this can’t be soup! This tastes nothing like the soup you make! This actually tastes good!”
