The Next Generation Needs Some Changes

, , , , , , | Working | January 26, 2018

(I have just pulled into a fast food restaurant after a long drive. I’m tired and not really with it.)

Cashier: “That will be $10.25, please”

Me: *hands over $20 note, thinks for a moment* “Oh, hold on. I’ll find the 25 cents.” *I hand her the coins*

Cashier: “I don’t need that; you given me too much. I don’t know how much change to give you now.”

Me: “Just give me a $10 note; I don’t want a handful of coins back.”

Cashier: “No, I can’t do that. I’ll have to explain to my boss where the $10 went to.”

Me: “You are supposed to give me $9.75, but I also gave you 25 cents, which adds up to $10.”

Cashier: “No, you are confusing me.” *gives me back the 25 cents and counts back $9.75 in change*

(I looked at the coins in my hand and wondered just how the next generation is going to survive.)
