Sainsburys, it just didn't add up

Viz comic once had a chracter in it I loved called 'Lazy, Disinterested Shoe Shop Girl'. This morning I met 'Lazy, Disinterested, Confused Checkout Boy'.

Exchange this morning from Sainsburys. I called in on my way to work to buy some milk and a banana, total cost £1.07 and I only had a ten pound note.
Me: "Would it help if I gave you the seven pence?"
Checkout Boy: "I think so."
Me (handing him £10 and 7p): "There you go, ta"
Checkout Boy hands me £8.50 change.
Me: "Sorry, I don't think that's quite right."
Checkout Boy looks confused.
Checkout Boy puts £8.50 back in the till.
Checkout Boy hands me a £20 note: "Is that right?"
I was tempted. I was very, very tempted.
Me: "Not quite, no. It was £1.07 and I gave you £10.07 so that's £9 change I need".
Checkout Boy: "Is it really?"
Me: "Yes"
Checkout Boy continues to look confused, hands me £9.00 and I leave.

I despair. I really do. And don't the cash registers do that for him?

yeah, he was clueless. He rang it in the till wrong, three times!

Oh dear - can't kids add up these days?! Love reading your Coronation Street updates by the way.
