I went to the store today & spent $34.28. I handed the cashier $35.30; & she just stood there.....
She kept looking at me, the money & the register. She seemed VERY CONFUSED.
I FINALLY ASKED HER.......Didn't I give you $35.00?
Then, she entered it into the cash register, & gave me my change.

GOOD GRIEF!!!!! " I " figured out how much change I should get....WITHOUT the register!
WHY can't people make "change"? This is NOT the first time this happened to me!
I TRY to make things EASIER; & NOT end up w/a bunch of COINS; & this girl looked at me like I had 2 HEADS! LOL

Is it HER......or IS IT ME????????

    I noticed you had a different pic and came here to your page to check it out. Congratulations!

    As regards the change making abilities, I'm seventy and still marvel at how some of these kids ever got out of school. I know the education is there to be had, because in addition to the "duh" types we're discussing, I also know some really bright kids of the same ages. It's kinda scary.


    PS - I looked a little farther and discovered your pic is from a while ago. We have you beat by just a little.... 3/3/99. I wanted to wait till 01/01/01, but she wouldn't fall for that.

    Not all of them are so bad! In Mankato, MN we have some very nice and smart cashiers, but this is a college town!

    I had similar experience with rain ck. Had 4 items reg $4.99 with $2.00 off. She couldn't figure out they'd be $2.99 each!! Gave me dirty look & comment when I told her after waiting & watching her write it down. Unbelievable?

    It is definitely not you! I really think they need to go back to the math and skills that we learned years ago in school. Technology is great, but in some areas it has not helped with the development of our youth.
