Simple math...or maybe not so much

Today at lunch I went to a SunTrust bank to cash a check from Robyn Webb for the groceries I used to test her dessert recipes. The amount was for $37.91. I asked the teller if I could get $38.00 if I gave her 10 cents.

She was so confused! I explained to her several times how I did not want the 91 cents. Finally she had a lightbulb moment! And said "oh! I was like what?"

Perhaps they don't teach simple math anymore...I just thought someone who works in the bank would know elementary addition.

Rant over :)

Perhaps you should look at your math again - $37.91 + .10 = $38.01.

well, yes, I was just going to leave the penny behind. The entire point was that I did not want any change.

Can't stop laughing at the idea of you two ladies both trying to figure out the right change :D
