Recount / Sure to stirrup controversy

So, twice recently someone has been counting money for me and would have (unintentionally) stiffed me ten bucks if I hadn't've been paying attention: first, at the BANK, the teller couldn't count out $200 for me correctly the first three times she tried it and I said "try again" until she got it right (and then looked incredibly embarrassed and apologized a lot). Then it was the woman giving me cash back at the grocery store who was starting to get annoyed with me when I asked her to re-count, but she too apologized when she realized she owed me ten.

What is this, Florida?

(The deeper question is: seriously, why does Erica need so much cash?)

Also this week, LATAWNA, the Naughty Horse, Learns to say "No" to Drugs. Thanks, Jim; I needed that. (No, wait, what I needed were these reviews on amazon, ohmigod!)

Hehehe... I actually can hear you saying "try again" to the bank teller.

Actually, someone tried to (unintentionally) stiff me on $10 the other day too - I gave them a 20 and they gave me change for a 10. Coincidence? Or just a tendency for people to be bad at counting (you mean there are numbers after 16??)
