A customer at the weekend furniture sale dropped off two $20 bills at K2’s office for items she had purchased. When I picked it up, I needed to give K2 $10 for sold items that belonged to another person. Holding the $40, I asked K2 for $10 in change.
We walked four steps to her office and she handed me a ten dollar bill.
I looked at the $10 bill in my right hand.
I looked at the two $20’s in my left hand.
What do I do?
“Is that right?” she asked, watching me.
“Yes,” I stalled.
It clicked. I took a deep breath, covered my confusion, handed her the…$20.
