So I'm in a store checkout line. Directly in front of me is a cute kid (blond girl) buying some toy at a discount. Mom is standing by watching. Aw, how sweet.
The kid hears the price, a dollar plus change, then she starts digging in her cute little purse for coins.
She counts them out until she arrives at the correct coinage. Then she's told the price includes all those coins plus one dollar. So she digs around some more for a dollar bill. Finally! The whole transaction took several minutes.
Anyway, it's all well and good for the kid to learn how to count money. But one lesson she didn't get was that she was holding up a line of people which included at least one curmudgeon steaming about the wasted time.
So moms, please be aware that not everyone loves your precious flower as much as you do. Maybe that's a lesson the flower should learn, too.
My own transaction took about half a minute.
P.S. There's got to be a blond joke in there somewhere. But the punchline has eluded me so far.
P.P.S OH OH OH! I've got one! Robo-ed:
How many blonds does it take to count out $1.63?
Two. One to count out the dollars. One to count out the cents. And one to add the dollars to the cents.
Wait. That's three.
You never said there would be any math.
