    It's sure dumbing down cashiers. I don't think the younger ones could properly count change back if their lives depended on it.
    Yeah, like if something rings up to $16.21, and I give them a Twenty, a One, two dimes and a penny - it's like it totally fries their brain, and they want to give me the change that the cash register says I get. I HATE that.... All I want is a FIVE!!!!

    Then it's like "you're trying to shortchange me - I heard about people like you!"

    First, they CHANGE the $20 and offset Jackson's head, now they dispense $20 haphazardly just to mess with me?!

    What is this world coming to?


    ETA: I think this started happening when Trump was elected!!!!
    Are you sure some of them weren't Jefferson's head?

    Today, I told a student to just tack a zero on the end instead of reaching for a calculator to multiply by ten.

    *sigh*

    Del Taco at least in Barstow require their cashiers to do the change instead of the machine.

    When I was a kid, all the buzz was about "converting to the metric system". Supposedly, this was imminent, and would require me to totally change my thinking before high school. Having worked in construction, using both systems, I wish we had made the conversion way back then! Metric math is so much easier.

    Another thing that bugs me immensely is when a clerk just hands you a wad of cash, including coins, instead of counting the change out into your hand. Then you either have to stand there and count it, while the customers behind you get impatient, or walk away with it and then if it's wrong you've got to prove that you didn't mess with it after you walked away.

    Or shove it in your wallet and not bother.

    Or in the case of a decimal number, just shove the decimal point one place to the right. Easy stuff.

    Have you all heard about the money system transitioning to hexadecimal to make it more compatible with computers?
