The register doesn't care how many bills you have in it, or how much change, as long as the TOTAL of all the coins and bills equal the amount that is supposed to be in there. So yes, the customer is correct. You'd just take back his original $4.25, and the additional $0.75, and give him a $5 back. He's happy, the register balances, and you don't get yelled at. As long as he's giving you the full $5 in bills and coins, then it all balances out and the register will be accurate when your manager counts it down.

You forgot to mention that the original post has an edit. It's to indicate that there is such as a thing as sugar free "honey", even if it's not really honey. The OP looked the information up, and realized that the customer must have been referring to that product, which the store didn't have either.

Unfortunately, it's not uncommonly used for suicide.

FMLA is short for Family Medical Leave Act. That protects workers from being fired for needing time off to take care of a direct family member, such as a child or spouse. It's intended to also be used for unexpected call outs due to taking care of those same family members who have a disability. Now, the person could have gotten the company for wrongful termination if they could prove that they were terminated for tn wrongful termination if they had a doctors note for each day, and were able to prove they had called in each day.

And how much are they wanting you to pay if something happens to that lovely little vr piece? I mean, I can just see kids playing around with the straps, beating up on the viewscreen, trying to take it off in mid-air... Just how are they planning on preventing those kinds of things from happening? And we know kids aren't the only ones. I can just see some old grandpa getting freaked out because it's a little too realistic for his taste, or an ex-military pilot having flashbacks.

I'm sure that there were at least a couple that recognized him, and were waiting for him to do something. I'm sure they were more surprised because he didn't do anything directly, unlike so many of his videos.

Yes, this is a repost. There are several stories on here that get reposted from earlier posts. Also, you might have noticed that many posts on here are actually from Reddit posts, so you might see a post that's original on here, but taken from other sites. I still enjoyed this post, because the crazy is strong in this one. At least the police didn't get taken in by her at any point, so that's good.

Arms and legs are still too thin for some body types. Wonder if that will start changing as well.

IF I'm right, and this is a big IF, it's four thin lines near the very bottom of the picture. I think those are to indicate where the stairs are. I was looking at the main part of the picture, with no idea where the stairs could be. But then, someone mentioned the lines, and that makes sense to me. However, I'd be the one to end up sprawled on the floor, broken arm or leg, with a legitimate reason for suing the company for causing my accident. Hell, I've fallen or almost fallen so many times, WITH a yellow line along the edge, to indicate where the edge is. Or where the edge is near, simply because I couldn't really tell that the yellow line meant anything.

When I was five (I was adopted), my mom and dad lost their first born, a little girl, when she was about five weeks old. It was even worse to know that she died on xmas day, and was labeled a crib death baby. I know if this baby supply company had been around at the time, it's likely that mom would have likely looked into purchasing her baby supplies through them. Especially if this type of response would have been seen by her. Unfortunately, it's unlikely that anyone in my family will have more children (sister has six, I think she took care of more than enough babies to cover grandchildren for mom and dad). However, if it ever does happen, I think I'll be recommending this company to them.

If it was small enough, and a ball, I could see one of my ca doing this. He goes after trash bags that are blown around by the wind all the time.

So many signs like this will show the wrong price somewhere in the list. I'm surprised there isn't a upcharge in there somewhere.

Sometimes I want to say that I'm allergic to onions. There's one place where I go fairly frequently, a burger place. I always request no onions, and end up getting a free burger later because 9 times out of 10, the burger gets onions. I don't like even removing the onions, because they are so strong, they still taint the burgers.

I don\t know. I thought it was funny. Now, mind you, I live in a residential area, and there is no doubt that missing pets aren't ending up in a stew or something, so maybe the security makes me more likely to enjoy these type of jokes. But it's obviously just a joke, not intended to make anyone upset or angry.

I know in some, you can get it in a mug with some very tasty ice cream as well. Root beer floats are the best ever way to have ice cream. Unless you do the ginger ale/7-Up and orange sherbet combo, those two go very well together as well.

Burger King has frozen Coke and Cherry Coke. I'm sure that not every one has it, but I used to sell them in one of mine, and I went in the other day and they still have the machine. It's just not as heavily advertised as it used to be.

This was actually a question asked by someone recently. Only, they were wondering about just one a week, not one every single day of the year. But I'm wondering, why worry about having it ring up as $3.50, instead of the actual cost? Isn't the drink free, regardless?

You didn't hear the part about 1-2 business day shipping? With no additional shipping cost to you? I think that I would have no problem with that. It would just require that I go in a couple days before I need the clothes, and I would have the ability to get exactly what I want, in the size and style that I prefer. I don't know how many times I've picked out something online, and been unhappy with the feel of the fabric, or the way it hangs on me. Or I love the item, but I would have to pay shipping costs, or the size is off by just a bit. If I could go in and know exactly what I was getting, I'd go for it, because online stores are generally a bit cheaper than brick and mortar stores. And since they have every size, all the clothes, and only one of each? They don't need a large store because they only have to carry one of everything. No need to worry about trying to find what is on clearance at the store or anything.

I would most definitely eat that. I love cornbread, potatoes are ok, gravy is ok, chicken is loved. I just wouldn't want legs, too much gristle for my tastes.

I don't know about anyone else, but I would have noticed that there was ice before leaving the window. The weight is heavier with ice, and there would have been a colder feel to the cup. Also, the way the soda "sloshes" with ice is completely different from when it's just soda. And of course, there's likely some condensation developing from the ice as well, a very visible sign of ice compared to the soda alone, no matter how cold the soda is. So many signals, why didn't this woman clue in before she left the window???

If I had thought about it, I would have asked to speak to the manager. Then, bitched at the manager for not making any effort to help, as well as asked why the other people who clocked in didn't help. AND gotten the number to corporate, to then bitch at them for the lack of help for those two people that did such an excellent job. And made sure to get their names, so that you could have made sure corporate knew about the swift staff they had working on that early rush.

Ok, whether you want to believe the videos or not, it's possible for a child or pet to DIE in a closed vehicle. This can happen during the colder months as well, not just the heat of summer. I found out that Vegas police and animal control have laws on the books to protect pets and children that are left unattended during ANY part of the year. If you leave a child or pet alone in your vehicle, even in the back of an openbed truck, you can be ticketed, lose your pet, and may lose your child to protective child services. And no, it doesn't matter if you have provided food/liquid, because the child or pet is still being left unattended.

This just hurt my brain. I think I became less able to write a proper sentence just from reading his comments. I'm sorry, but he couldn't use her, he had to use she each time??? And what's really sad is that the final comment made more sense than the paragraph(s) before it.

Used to work inbound tech support for a major keyboard/mouse/webcam company. Not the hated one, but one that has a very liberal replacement policy. Which I hated, because I just knew that people weren't following steps to try repairing the issues, they just wanted a nice shiny new device and knew all they had to do was bullshit enough. But then again, sometimes it was coworkers not doing the troubleshooting. Had one guy call and say he was having the same problems with his replacement, was mighty pissed. Turned out that both devices just needed to re-establish a secure connection to the usb dongle, and he had two shiny new, working, keyboards to play around with. Told him he lucked out, and to keep the replacement, or give it to a friend if he wanted. At least I ended up with a nice call resolution for that one, for once.

I live in a studio apartment with a glass screen door as my only entrance. It's really hard for someone to knock on the door and NOT be heard. Hell, we hear people knocking on the doors ACROSS from us, much less neighbors. And I've put up notes requesting that the drivers either knock and wait, or deliver packages to the office, and STILL gotten notes saying failure to deliver. I've had to run down the driver, because they would do a quick tap, tap, drop the package, and run. I've explained that although it's unlikely to happen, I don't want packages left at the doorstep because of potential for theft. Requested that they spend the time to either wait, or deliver to the office, either is fine. Explained that we need loud knocks, because hubby can't come to the door. Driver can always either open the door and drop the package off, or deliver to office, if they felt uncomfortable with that option. Or hell, deliver to neighbor. Still waiting for this to work properly with an expensive item. Never fails, they can follow instructions when item is $10 adult wipes, but $100 kindle, let's just leave that against the door with no knock or anything...
