No Penny Is Worth These Thoughts

, , , , , | Right | January 31, 2018

(In Canada we recently got rid of the penny. We round up or down for cash transactions. A customer comes up and orders a medium coffee refill and a muffin.)

Me: *$2.86 shows up on screen* “That’ll be $2.85.”

Customer: “It’s normally $2.75.”

Me: “You asked for a medium refill, correct?”

Customer: “Yes, it’s $2.75.”

Me: “Well, on my till it’s coming up as $2.85, and as far as I’m aware, that’s the price it’s always been.”

Customer: “I ALWAYS PAY $2.75!”

(Not wanting to argue, I charge her for a small refill, thus making her total $2.76.)

Me: “That’ll be $2.75.”

Customer: “IT’S NORMALLY $2.75!”

Me: “Yes.”

Customer: “WHY AM I BEING CHARGED THE EXTRA PENNY?!”

Me: *stunned silence*

Customer: “FINE!” *throws cash at me and runs away*

Me: *to my coworker* “Did that lady just get angry over a penny she wasn’t even being charged for?”
