This Is Money… Let Me Explain How It Works  

, , , , | Right | November 27, 2019

(I work in my campus bookstore where many of our clothing items are somewhat pricey. This customer comes to my register and hands me a coffee thermos and an expensive sweatshirt.)

Me: “Your total comes to $75.78.”

Customer: *hands me $9.00 — seven $1.00 bills, and one $2.00*

Me: “Sir, I don’t believe we accept $2.00 bills, but I can take the rest. Would you like to put the rest on a credit card?”

Customer: “Isn’t that enough money?”

Me: “No, sir, it’s $75, not $7.”

Customer: “Oh, I thought that would cover it.”

Me: “I’m sorry, but everything in our store is pretty great quality, so our items are more expensive.”

Customer: “That doesn’t make sense.” *pays with a credit card and storms out*
