-The customer had 15 items all the same and 15 different receipts for all of them and he wanted to return them so I processed his return-
Me: Looks like I owe ya 25.19.
Customer: No, you owe me 25.20!
Me: oh.. well.. the computer processed how much I owe you to give back and it says 25.19.
Customer. No! I counted out how much you owe me and it is 25.20
Me: sir, I can show you on the screen it rang it up as 25.19.
Customer: Are you saying I don’t know how to count?!
Me: No, of course not. This is just what the computer says.
-I let the computer print out the receipt and I turn over to my coworker with that desperate look of “help me explain this please” but he didn’t understand. I turn back over and notice the receipt is gone while I’m giving him his 25.19-
Customer: This is only 25.19. You owe me 25.20.
Me: Sir, do you have the receipt? Because it says right on there how much I am supposed to give you back..
Customer: Oh. It does say 25.19. Well! It’s still the principle of the thing and I’m not leaving till I get my 25.20
-So I give him a penny because obviously this is going nowhere-
-the customer hands me back the dime and pennies-
Customer: give me a nickel.
