How To Round Up The Idiots

, , , , | Right | May 6, 2020

I work as a cashier at a fast food restaurant in a mall food court. Canada has recently discontinued use of the penny, so we are forced to round our change. An angry customer tries to barter with me one day.

Customer: “I’ll have a small root beer.”

Me: “That’ll be $1.93.”

Customer: “I don’t have any pennies. Can I just give you $1.90 and you round in my favour?”

Me: “I’m sorry, sir, I can’t do that. When a purchase is one or two cents above you round down, and when it is three or four cents, you round up. I need $1.95 from you.”

Customer: “I see the kind of establishment you’re running, but you won’t fool me! I’m never coming to this restaurant again!”

I stood there dumbfounded, watching him storm across the food court.
