so i was at kroger today, right?

i usually go at around 2am and the guy that works then knows me. if shawn goes without me he asks where i am, it's really cute.

but we went in the middle of the day today and our cashier (a 17 year old girl) was talking to our bagger (a 15 year old boy) and the bagger was talking about how he'd race her and win because his cousin drives an eclipse spider and she was like "you can't even drive". and he was like "how old are you?" and she was like "17" and he was like "are you a senior?" and she was like "i'm supposed to be" (believe me, this comes into play in a second)

so our total is $125.30 and i give her $126. she rings it up at $176 and i said "no, i only gave you $126" so she calls over her manager.

her manager tells her to just give me the change i should get and to jot it down on a piece of paper. and the girl was like "i'm no good at math" so the bagger breaks out his calculator and starts figuring out how much we're supposed to get back.

so they come to some conclusion and the girl grabs out $50 and gives it to me, and i was like "umm... that's not right" and she looks at the bagger and he says "oh yeah, you're supposed to give them an extra dollar"

and i was like "o_O no. i'm supposed to get back 70 cents" and the woman behind me said that it was nice that i was so honest.




i really fear for the youth. at first i thought she just called the manager over to figure out how to make it right with the system, i didn't realize she called the manager over because she's a complete retard that can't do math. i have a suspicion that kid will always be working at that kroger.


i shoulda kept the $50. stupidity tax.
