- Check = $6.42
- Cash = $7.02 (five dollar bill, two dollar coins and two pennies)
- and the change you get back is $1.43.
The cashier tells me she thought the two dollar coins were quarters. Of course, that meant that the change she should have given me based on this mistake was 10¢, not $1.43. So, the manager comes over to help out. At first, he insists that my bill was $6.52 (the change that the cashier thought I tendered). I had to correct him twice. He finally figures it out, takes the change back and hands me 50¢. I don't know where everyone learned math, but that isn't quite right either. After correcting him one last time, I finally get back my 60¢ change.
That will learn me not to pay cash!
