The newspaper girl came to the front door, to be paid for our subscription. "How much for the subscription?" I said. "$7.50," she said. "Well, here's a $10," I said. waiting... waiting... "So how much change do I give you?" she said. This child of the computer age was helpless without pushbuttons! I think we are doomed.

That is one of my pet peeves. I worked as a cashier while in college and always counted back change even though I wasn't trained to. It just came naturally. You have to be a serious moron not to be able to count back change. You'd be suprised how often I get back the wrong change. Usually I get more back than is required. I alway's give it back.

Ever been to a Fry's computer store? I was there when a big storm rolling was through the area and the power shut off. Only 2 failed dot com goatee head employees there knew how to use a calculator to figure out the total + tax.

Let me figure it out for you. Oh, this is interesting. You owe me $4,235.68. By the way, this is compounded on a hourly basis.[:O]
