Cashier: “Okay, your change is $4.98.”

Me: “Oh, I’m sorry. Here is 2 cents.”

(The cashier looks at the change for a few moments in confusion.)

Cashier: *still confused* “How much do I give you back in change?”

Me: “Well, what is 498 + 2?”

Cashier: “500…” *completely serious* “…so, I should give you back $500?”

Me: “Actually, it’s $5.00….though I wouldn’t mind the $500!”
