We were having dinner at a fast food chain the other night. As my mom paid, my brother and I looked for a table and settled. Then my mom told us an interesting conversation she had with the cashier.
Cashier: (As she hands out the change) Mam’, my change is one peso short.
Mama: Huh? Why?
Cashier: Mam’, because I ran out of coins already.
Mama: That’s not okay. Had I been the one who was one peso short, would you still give me my order?
Halfway into the meal, the cashier heads to our table, looking annoyed or embarrassed, and gives my mom her one peso.
I would have done the same thing my mom did. It’s really not about the amount, nor is it being sarcastic. I can’t quite a put a finger on where my mom went right exactly, but I’d still do the same.
