I Asked For My Dollar
However, one day after a hard day’s work, I went to a particular wholesale to buy one item and ended up buying a few more items which costs One Thousand and One Dollars ($1001.00).
I gave the Cashier $2000 and for a moment wondered if she would really change $1000 for just $1; my wait was short lived as she proceeded to make my change.
I am not against paying the price for the items I bought, even if one has to change $1000 to take $1 from it, that’s what the items I ordered cost, that’s the amount I will pay, simple.
I waited patiently for my $999, but was disappointed when she handed me the change and I counted and saw that it was a dollar short, it was only $998. I looked at the receipt in my hand and saw that the items cost $1001.47, and that the difference was $998.53. So, of course, without hesitating I asked for my $1, she looked at me with a frown on her face, as if to say, you really asking for $1.
I paid no attention to her expression; what she wanted to do with her face was her problem, my only concern was getting my money.
When my dollar was not forthcoming, I looked at her and she uttered something which was not very audible, I said, the receipt shows that I have the bigger half of the dollar, now… give me my change. She handed me my dollar, slammed her cash register drawer and I went and collected my goods.
All I am saying is this, just as how she saw the need to collect her dollar, she should also ensure that my dollar is given to me. People often say that if you are $1 short and you go to the supermarket, you cannot get the item, and that could very much be true.
Have you ever gone to the supermarket/wholesale and because you were short a dollar or few you could not get the item?
