My Six Cents

On this penultimate day of my vacation, I went to see a movie and, on my way home, stopped at Starbucks.  The tab at Starbucks came to $4.56.

I fished a $5 bill out of my wallet and handed it to the clerk.  I then said, "I think have have six cents," and proceeded to get a nickel and a penny out of the change compartment.

As I tried to give the six cents to the clerk, she said, "That's OK.  I already rang it up."  Sure enough, when I looked at the register, it said my change from the $5 was $0.44.

I thought about saying something, but then thought better of it.  I mean, what could I say?  She already rang it up.
