Local Mini Mart Complaint - No Math Skills
CALIFORNIA -- This is really meant for so many stores these days and it's pretty sad. People can't count change anymore. I went to the local mini mart for two fountain sodas. The total was $2.47
I gave the kid a 5 dollar bill and .50 cents change. I guess he didn't see the change and rang in $5.00. He was absolutely confused and he was trying to hand me two bills and some change. His boss was standing by and said nothing to him. I couldn't bear to see him so flustered and finally told him what change he owed me. His boss said nothing but just watched the guy in his embarassed confusion. I did get my correct change. What is happening in the schools where a simple math problem is so perplexing? I've had it happen at more then a few places in the past.
