    bragging rights / time travel or the state of education ?

    Of course I may have been his first Customer Ever

    6 pounds of Ground Round @ $4.99 a Pound = $8.99 yesterday ($1.50 a Lb)

    walked into the meat market yesterday and there was a new kid, looked fresh out of high school
    who immediately asked to help. I asked for 6 pounds of ground round.
    as he was digging in the meat I walked over and got a 12 pack of kaiser buns. $3.05
    my next and last request was 2 pounds of Cooked Ham. Normally $2 a pound, cost 6.10 must have went up

    he worked up the order and said that comes to $14.00

    I Say Somethings Wrong should be over $30.00

    he said Nope $14.00

    Did you give me 6 Pounds of Ground Round ?

    he held it up Yep See !

    did it go down that much ? he said Yep.

    I looked at the Price on the Counter Glass $4.99 a Lb.

    so I shut up . hey I tried , he didn't want to hear it.
    and everyone else was in the kitchen having a laugh over something

    I guess I could have gone over his head, but didn't want to ruin his first day
    Especially if he was from the 1970's

    allot of people may have been pleasantly surprised too



    also interesting bill came to $18.14

    all he remembered was 14



    Both look like 8's

    I was given too much change back once by like 10 dollars. When I told her she gave me too much change she started loudly saying I was trying to rip her off (by giving her money back?!). Since other customers were now looking at me, I just smiled and left. Oh well.

    that happens to me occasionally , I must admit at least Once after a Discussion, She convinced me I was the one adding wrong.
    of course my excuse, I did the math in my head a bit too fast I'm sure.

    I always worry when I bring up they gave me too much they would somehow get offended.
    so I don't always question amounts in or against my favor.

    but when it's obvious I at least try to understand before leaving the counters.

    I do always get suspicious when they run my card,
    then say I need to run it again because something went wrong.
