What I learned in 34 years.
All I wanted was a quarter back. - George Wallace
A couple of years ago, I confused the poor child at the Ren Faire by doing this. She simply could not comprehend that I just wanted a dime instead of getting 9 pennies back (my change would’ve been something like 79 cents. I just wanted 80. She called another girl, then the booth manager. I’m staring at my husband like, ‘Is this real life?” I used small words, showed them how to make change, showed them the math on my calculator. They didn’t get it and looked at me like I was using sorcery. Forget it. A few months later, I’m at the county fair. Same girl at the beer booth. “I’m using my card today so you don’t have to make change!”
