Bringing In Lots Of Change

| Wallingford, CT, USA | At The Checkout, Money

(I’m a cashier at a sandwich shop, and a kid no older than twelve approaches the counter with a large order of sandwiches. He looks a little sheepish.)

Kid: “So… um… how much is that?”

Me: “[Total over thirty dollars].”

Kid: “Yeah… so… I’m so sorry but…”

(The kid then holds up a large gallon plastic baggy of quarters, dimes, and nickels.)

Kid: “…this is the only money I have.”

Me: *laughs* “No problem. I’m sure you’ve got plenty.”

(The kid is kind enough to help me count by piling dimes up into dollar stacks as I count them, and he’s got more than enough, so he adds some chips and drinks to his order. The whole process takes a while, but he’s the only customer cashing out at the moment and I am in no rush. As I’m patiently counting out another stack of dimes and nickels for the additional food, my boss peeks over to my register and sees my mountain of coins, and he is red with laughter.)

Manager: “Haha! I can’t believe it! You had to count all of that?”

Me: *smiling evilly* “That’s nothing. You’re the one balancing out my drawer before I leave!”

(The look of horror on my boss’s face was priceless.)

Wallets Come In All Shapes And Sizes

| CA, USA | Bosses & Owners, Money

(My friend owns a small ice cream shop close to the beach, which makes him quite a bit of money. One day, while we are hanging out, he offers to give our group a free round of ice cream. We head down to his store, wait in line, and get up to the counter to order.)

Employee #1: “Hey, [Friend]. Decided to treat yourself?”

Friend: “Yep. This group is on me.”

(We order, and my friend steps over to the cashier to have them record the ‘sale’ for inventory purposes. Before he can say anything, the cashier speaks up.)

Cashier: “That will be [amount].”

Friend: *pauses, then smiles* “Well, okay, then. I guess that works.”

(He pulls out his wallet, while the cashier looks up and actually recognizes him, getting a really startled look on his face. My friend pays and walks out with us.)

Friend: “I suppose it doesn’t really matter if I keep my money in this wallet or that one.”

Will Change His Attitude After That

| Glens Falls, NY, USA | Bad Behavior, Money, Transportation

(I have gone grocery shopping and am literally down to my last cents, which means paying the taxi driver in loose change. Most drivers don’t complain; especially since they always need change.)

Me: *counts out quarters and dimes to equal $3.25*

Driver: “Ugh, more f****** change!”

Me: *hands him exact change* “Don’t worry, I won’t give you a tip in change.”

(He got even more aggravated, but I’m betting he learnt to shut his mouth after that.)
