Today, I had an elderly man come to my cash register. His total came to $15.50 He handed me $5 in nickels and dimes. A full roll of quarters. Before I could take the roll, he bust it open, making me count it. After that was all counted he was 50 cents short. So he handed me a $10 bill. FML

I hope you gave the fucker his change in pennies.

It's the little old ladies in front of me at the checkout counting exact change at a rate of 1 coin / 2 seconds that make me want to strangle them.

Lol, I would've just thrown the quarters right in his face, but only after he paid an received the bill though :P

"No!!! You're going to find another 50 cents in change!!!!!"

Oh my gosh! You had to count 40 coins! How horrific!

$10 in quarters= 40 coins. At best $5 in dimes and nickels= 51 coins(49 dimes and two nickels) 40+51=91. Great math skills genius.

60, well it sure wasn't pleasant.

Hahahahahaha

Haha! That elder is the funniest I love him

.... little droplets of poop?

:'D You gotta love them old people!

Only the ones that can write you into their wills.

Yes, that too! How could I forget?!?

You just KNOW he did that on purpose.

I hope you gave the fucker his change in pennies.

Pennies don't exist anymore

As a former cashier, I can personally sympathize with this FML. This is the epitome of the crap that cashiers go through on a daily basis. Being a cashier in many ways made me hate humanity, therefore I had to quit to keep my sanity.

Yea it's instances such as the OP's, that make me so thankful for my new job... I'm still trying to repress the memories of five years in retail...

I feel u... lol

#7 Nice riming :D #17 Eeew...

Congratulations pendantic on the idiot comment of the day. Moron.

Same here dude. They did that to me all the time. EVEN WORSE since I live on a border town "do you take mexican money?" makes it even more difficult :/

Been there.

I hope you took the £10 bill and gave him his change back in said nickels. And then every time you had a handful of his change you just dropped it all on the ground!

Fail #27 of the day: The OP is american and they even said in the FML that it was $10 not £10... :l

I thought he was going to ask you to reach into his pocket to help him find his "other" roll of quarters.

... Another awkward comment from perdix.

man that really sucks. im a chasier too , and get people like that all the time. sucks

i hope like me you hand them back the coins as change and dont let them try and get the bills back
