Tips for Retards™ – Tip #43

So, I was in Quizno’s today buying a beef dip sandwich. I get to the cash and place a bottle of Coke Zero on the counter. The nice woman behind the counter rings in my sandwich and adds the bottle of pop. The total was $10.83. I only had a $20 in my wallet so I pulled it out and handed it to her. As I placed it in her palm, I said, “Hang on a sec – I have change.”
I looked in my heavy pocket, but found that I didn’t have exact change: only four loonies. As this point, she rings in the $20. The change comes up as $9.17. I don’t need more change, so I hand her a loonie.
As she looks at her hand with the loonie in it, a quizzical look crosses her face. She looks at me, then the coin and then back at me. I smile.

As the confusion grows, she reaches into the drawer under the register and pulls out a calculator.


After a few tense, sweat-filled moments, she hits the equal button, grins and pulls out a $10 bill, handing it to me with a dime, a nickel and 2 pennies. I place the $10 in my wallet, put the change in my pocket, grabbed my bag and walked out.

If you require a calculator to add $1 to a customer’s change, perhaps the financial and/or food service industry isn’t for you.
