Yesterday at the drive-thru window of my nearby Sonic:
Blonde Teen Cashier: "That's $2.34."
Me: [hand her $3.04]
BTC: [a look of horror on her face, calls one of her co-workers over, who promptly blows her off. Second co-worker does the same. They're busy. BTC fumbles for some change, and I notice at least one penny entering into the mix.]
Me: [as she hands me my change] "Is there a penny in there?"
Me: "You're not good at math, are you?"
BTC: "No. That's why I work at Sonic."
This morning, same drive-thru, same BTC working the window:
BTC: "Oh, it's Change Guy!" [funny, she doesn't seem happy to see me...]
Me: "Yeah, but I'll make it easier for you today." [hand her $3.06 for a $2.56 bill...]
BTC: [lays my coins on the counter, rummages through her fanny pack for her cell phone, starts punching numbers into its calculator function.
Me: [laughing hysterically on the inside]
BTC: Is this right? [hands me a nickel]
Me: "Um, no."
This afternoon, same drive-thru, same BTC working the window:
BTC: "It's Change Guy!" [even less enthusiastic about seeing me this time.]
Me: "Yeah, but I'm gonna make it really easy for you this time." [hand her a twenty for a $2.34 bill...]
BTC: [ah yes, the return of Mr. Cell Phone Calculator!] "Here's your change."
Me: "You don't mind if I count it, do you?"
Me: "Good job, you got it right!"
BTC: "Here's your drinks." [drinks? hands me one drink, then begins to hand me a second one of equal size.]
Me: "You realize I only ordered one drink, right?"
BTC: "Oh, I read the ticket wrong."
How much you want to bet she's a straight-A student in school?
