What Do Cashiers Know About Math?

I’m a cashier and we have a lot of 20%-off coupons. I’ve had a few people check my math with their phone calculators when deciding which coupon to use. I’m absolutely fine with that.

Customer: “Would I get a better deal with the coupon for $20 off a purchase of over $80 or the one for 20% off one item?”

Me: “Your largest item is over $100, so the 20%-off coupon gets you the better deal.”

Customer: “Do you go to [University]?”

Me: “No?”

Customer: “Okay.”

And then she proceeded to check my math for five minutes — I don’t know why it took her so long — and I had to call someone to hook on another register because the line was getting long.

She finally agreed that 20% off the over-$100 item was more than $20 and paid.

I live in a college town, but, ma’am, this was not college-level math.
