Math

Customer: Can I get about $7 worth of shrimp.

(I grab a handful and throw it on the scale)

Me: That’s $7.57. Is that good? Or do you want me to take a few out?

Customer: Add four more. (As I add four more) I want it to be under $8.

Me: Um....well that’s $9.12.

Customer: Take out four.

Me: Okay. Here you go!

Customer: WAIT! How much is that?!

Me: It’s back to $7.57

Customer: Add three more.

Weight Of The World

Customer: One pound of shrimp, please.

Me: Yes, ma’am!

(I bag up some shrimp. It weighs 1.02 lbs)

Customer: I said a pound. I don’t want more than that.

(I pull out a shrimp. It now weighs .99 lbs)

Customer: Are you deaf?! One pound!

(I try shrimp after shrimp until I get one that brings the total to one pound even)

Customer: It shouldn’t have been that hard.
