Making Cents Out of Change

When you pay cash for a purchase, have you noticed how often the person working the cash register doesn't know how to either make change, or how to count your change back to you? It's amazing that retail stores and restaurants hire and assign employees to work a cash register, when they can't make sense cents out of change! We've all experienced the frustration of clerks who don't have a basic working knowledge for making change, but how about this one?

A friend of mine made a purchase at a small local thrift shop. Upon completion of the transaction, he requested a receipt for his purchase. Following his request, the clerk provided a hand written receipt, but not for his purchase amount. Although the clerk wasn't blonde, she gave him a hand written receipt for the amount of his change, not for the total purchase amount. In this case, the amount of change was more than the purchase price. I wonder if they take refunds - lol? Now there's a different twist for not making sense cents out of change! :-o
