I am SICK AND TIRED of being asked for change by cashiers. I'm sorry my total is $19.01 and I gave you a $20 - but I am not stupid, I know how to do math, and I don't have a freaking penny! I think that is so incredibly rude!! I've been a cashier myself for the past 6+ months at a huge, high-volume store and I see upwards of 200 people a day - I have not ONCE asked someone for more money. It's not my business if they have change on them or what - they might need the change for parking meters or laundry or something of the sort, so I don't care at all. I gurantee you every single cashier who's ever asked me that had $.99 in their drawer. Just because you're lazy doesn't mean you need to treat me like I'm stupid for not carrying change.
Edit: I guess I think it's less of a hassle than other cashiers because if people hand me the change after I've already put in what they have, I actually have the ability to do math and figure out their new correct change. I don't care if you think I've overreacting or being a bitch, because I've been asked for more change by about 4 people in the past two days, and I'm really sick of it and think it's rude. This community is about bad service, and this is what I consider bad service.
Edit x2: It all depends on if people want to assume you want $.99 or don't want $.99. I trust my customers to know what they're doing and all I want is the same respect from others, and that's how I see it, and if I'm a bitch for that then so be it.
