Need to rant..
Does high school no longer teach basic math skills..
I stopped at turkey hill for gas, wanted to use cash instead of plastic, the clerk screwed up putting the amount of cash in and could not figure out how to fix it, then she grabbed the calculator and still screwed up cause I got an extra dollar change, yea I kept my mouth shut..
Then just awhile ago I went to giants and used cash to pay a bill of $10.97...I did not have any tens but I had a twenty and a one ( I didn't want a bunch of one's back ) .. the clerk punched in .21 instead, and again could not figure this out, called the manager over and they still screwed it up, when I honestly told them that they gave me to much change, they had to call yet another person to bring a calculator...
Needless to say, I walked out of there just shaking my head and wondering what society will be like in another 20 years
End of rant..
Back to the regularly scheduled chicken talk.
you just found this out? i've known this for many years, unless they have a computer cash register that tells them how much change to return, they don't have a clue, i went thru the same thing about seven years ago but like a dummy i stood there telling the girl she gave me too much money back, i could have gotten a free carton of cigerettes and a 24 pack of coke for free(yeah i smoked at the time) but being raised the way i was, i pointed it out and like you, had to go thru three people til i found someone who could add and substract.
