Is counting so hard?

Is counting so hard?
It amazes me how little people use their brains!

   I went through the drive-thru and my total was $5.21 and I gave the cahier a ten and said, 'Hold on, let me see if I've got the change.' I found the 21 cents, but by then she'd already totaled the sale. When I handed her the change, she said, 'What's this for?' and I said, 'It's the change.'
   She looked at me like I was stupid and said, 'You've already gave me a ten, you have enough.' And proceeded to give me back 4.79 . . . and my 21 cents. Huh

Wildcard is awesome.

i guess you don't have to be able to count anymore if you work in places like that,they push on images of the product and then automaticly it says how much change to give back,so you shouldn't bother to be too cleverBig Grin ,i hope this was a usefull lesson lesson ,if not,contact meTongue

It just sucks how people are deciding not to think. In another forum a member started a thread called 'With Facts So REadily Available Why Should We Learn?'

I was so shocked I didn't even reply.

I teach adult ed, including numeracy -- and fair enough, plenty of people have genuine trouble with basic maths, but what's really scary are the people who've had to come to classes to retrain but have previously held jobs in retail or (the most unbelievable of all) in engineering!

Engineering!? I've actually got a lot of respect for the bullshitting capacity of a person who can suck at math and be an engineer . . . wow
