The magic change number is the high light of my cashier
ing days. Whenever the change comes up as 41
cents my little heart leaps for joy
. You see 41
cents change means that i dig out one coin from each slot
in my register
(this is american
; i apologize
It's gotten to the point where I'm beginning to think of all my change in terms of how it relates to 41. Examples:
31 cents = 41 minus dime;
36 cents = 41 minus nickel;
66 cents = 41 plus 1 quarter
and oooohhhh 91 = 41 plus two quarters.
Yeah, i know i'm a tad bit weird...but look when you spend all day selling cigarettes to annoying little girls who feel all naughty and adults who have "gotta have a smoke" you get a little off in the head.
