The Way I See It!

I am an Ultra-Conservative, Alpha-Male, True Authentic Leader, Type "C" Personality, who is very active in my community; whether it is donating time, clothes or money for Project Concern or going to Common Council meetings and voicing my opinions. As a blogger, I intend to provide a different viewpoint "The way I see it!" on various world, national and local issues with a few helpful tips & tidbits sprinkled in.

Afraid For The Future

Culture, school

I picked up lunch at Culver’s this last week.  I went inside as the drive thru was very busy. 

 

I ordered two chicken cashew salads for my wife and I.  The total came to $12.68.

 

The young woman working the register was very polite.  I handed her $23.00 (a twenty-dollar bill and three one-dollar bills). 

 

She looked puzzled and told me that I over paid. 

 

To which I said, “Yes $23.00 will give me a ten-dollar bill and some change, 32 cents to be exact.”

 

She said to me, “But, you are over paying sir.”

 

I said, “Yes that way I can get rid of multiple smaller bills and get a larger one back.”

 

She said almost as if she was asking me a question, “I don’t think you will.”

 

I told her to just type it in and she will see.

 

Yes, the register told her to give $10.32 back in change.

 

She laughed and told me math was not her strong suit and she just graduated from high school. 

 

I said, “MPS?”

 

She said all giddy, “Yeah how did you know?”

 

“Just a guess!” I said as I waited with my call number shaking my head.

 

Now it was not as if I gave her a complicated change amount like 78 cents (3 quarters and 3 pennies) to get a dime back.  No this is straight math and common sense.
