Tourists Don’t Change

, , , , | Right | August 26, 2019

(I’m at an ice cream shop, next in line to get my order. The customer before me has just paid for his ice cream and the employee hands him his change. She gives him a roll of coins with his receipt. He stares at her blankly.)

Employee: “Is there a problem, sir?”

Customer: “What is this?”

Employee: “Your change, sir.”

Customer: “My change? I gave you a bill and you give me this thing? What is this?”

Employee: *takes the roll of coins* “I can unwrap it if you like sir; there are 25 pesos here.” *starts to unwrap the coins*

Customer: “No, no, no! I just don’t understand! I gave you a 100-peso bill and you gave me this thing! What is this?!”

Employee: “Sir? It’s… your change; they’re coins…”

Customer: “Forget it! Just give me my bill back. I don’t want anything. I don’t understand! Why are you doing this to me?!”
