On cold days like these, I love a good hot drink. So I popped by Tim Hortons to get a cup of tea.
The guy in front of me ordered two hot chocolates, one for him and one for his girlfriend. It came to $2.87. He tried to pay with a pre-paid card but the machine didn't work. So he had to walk away.
My tea, as usual, was $1.52. I decided to pay for their hot chocolates as well - after all, they were already made, and sitting on the counter. I had already done the rough math in my head so I had $4.50 in change ready for the cashier.
Somehow, the cashier got really confused and ended up charging me $2.87. I mentioned that it didn't sound right, but she was so confused that she just said, "Oh well."
So I put the remainder of the change into the Tim Hortons Children's Foundation box. Then I told the guy that he could have his hot chocolates.
