Bought a $40 item and had a $6 off coupon, but the cashier tried to tell me it was $46.
I politely said, "No, it's $34"
Ignoramus responded, "if you say so" and then rung it up and surprise, surprise, surprise it was $34.
Then she set my receipt in a puddle from previous customer's ice instead of handing it to my outstretched hand.
I probably should've asked for a manager, but instead left grumbling

Do you want fries with that?
It kill me when I purchase something in a store lets say for $4.50 total with tax. You hand a $5 bill and they still have to read the screen to see you get $.50 back.

Want more fun? Buy something that is, for example, $4.17. Hand the cashier a five dollar bill, a dime, a nickel, and two pennies.
A mind is a terrible thing.
I stopped using change it was too much for most cashiers. I came to the realization change is obsolete. Too bad, I grew up counting change. Change was important to me...way back to when I got 2 cents for pop bottles. Ah, the good ol’ days.
Last time I tried this, the cashier stood there slack jawed staring at the money I'd handed to her. Then she tried to give me back the change saying "you gave me too much money." Not really. Let me explain how this works.
It really is a favorite activity of mine. Sort of a litmus test for my community. I especially enjoy making the change an odd amount so that I get a "case quarter" in return.
I usually wait until they've rung up the order, then give them change as they're opening the cash drawer. 404 Errors ensue nearly everytime.

Even more fun: use $2 bills, $1 coins, and 50¢ pieces.

I've got ten to fifteen Sacagawea dollars I've been saving for a visit to the exotic dance emporium.
Rev, I do that all the time and it drives my wife crazy. I just love watching them struggle to figure out what to do. I've had 4 or 5 of them standing around the cash register trying to figure it out.

Place the coins in the slot, see what you get in return.

Oh yeah. Had the same experience.
My tab came to $16.55 I gave the cashier a $20, a $1, two quarters and a nickel. She had no idea what to do. I told her just to give me a $5 bill. She still didn't get it. I finally had to get my phone out and show her on the calculator app.

Want even more fun? Hand the cashier a five dollar bill and three pennies and watch their brains implode.

There's still a few hours left in the day but that's the dumbest fucking thing I've heard today.
Should've asked her, "why would I bring you a coupon so I could pay more for the item? What sense does that make?"
And these are the morons who want $15/hour, vote like you and I, and produce offspring...
You might want to give them a close look first

I usually leave home in the morning with a small handful of change hoping to return home with less io put back in the drawer. I must it is both fun and somewhat disheartening to see the occasional blank stare when handing the cashier exact change. If I tell them I have the change, but they quickly enter the whole dollars into the register, I will patiently wait until they do the calculus needed to hand me the correct bills.
One young fellow refused to take my money telling me I was giving him too much money. I told him to call the manager. That’s when the neighboring cashier told him, “He wants a dollar back”. The young fellow’s face went bright red in embarrassment. We both laughed and I told him that I didn’t mean to embarrass him and we had a good discussion about making change. He was a quick study and now hands me the right amount before i can hand him my money. Good kid. But not all get the point like he did.
