Being short $10 dollars

australian currency notes collage Sometimes, peoples’ lack of maths skills amaze me.

I was at the airport the other night, buying some stuff.

Total cost $41.35.

Gave the old bloke $60 (3 x $20).

I received $28.65 change, a “bonus” of $10.

Spent the next five minutes arguing with the old bloke, that he was short-changing himself $10.

Now some people might say “… serves him right, keep the extra $10.”

But the thought of the poor bloke having to make up cash from his wage stopped me doing that.
