  • Cashier problem.

    You are a cashier and owe a customer $41 change from a $50 bill.
    You have every denomination of paper currency in the drawer except $1 bills, and insufficient coins to make a dollar.
    How do you pay the customer $41 in cash?

    I'll leave this one for Richard. I worked several cashier jobs in my school days and that was enough.

      I have heard this someplace before, but since it was more than 10-12 minutes ago, I’ll be darned if I can remember the answer. So, I will pass it back to our former cashier for a update !

        You ask the customer if he has a one-dollar bill to go with the fifty, so you can give him back $40 in two twenties.

        Or you dump the "take a penny, leave a penny" dish into the register and still give him the two twenties. That way your drawer will still be off at the end of the night, but only by less than a dollar, and no store manager I ever worked for had a problem with that.

        I also never worked for a manager who didn't make sure you had plenty of extra ones and fives in the drawer.

          Hint - Think $2 bill.

            Ah, so $35 plus three two-dollar bills. We do tend to forget the two-dollar bill, don't we? I've only seen maybe four or five in my life.

              Matt - By Jove, you've got it!
              But your other answers are creative and practical.

                Is the $2 bill currently being printed ? I have not seen one in over a coon’s age ! But I like Matt’s idea of asking the customer for a single and going from there. The $2 bill thing is too sneaky 99, I call foul ball on that one ! How about you Matt ?

                  Well, he did say "every denomination," and whether they're still being printed or not, they're still in circulation. Last I knew, anyway. Up until last year I occasionally helped out a relative with his liquor store and we'd see a $2 bill every so often.

                  Actually I just checked the Treasury Dept.'s website, and they are in fact still being produced! That's good to know. If all I have is a fifty the next time I buy $9.00 worth of stuff, I can rest assured the cashier can make change if he's out of ones.

                    Yes, the $2 is still printed but seldom seen in the everyday commercial world.
                    Most of the time, you will find them buried in bank teller drawers and other cash drawers and used as markers for stolen cash.
                    The OTHER place you will find them in great abundance is horse race tracks.
                    Two dollar bets are big, one dollar bills are a pain.
                    Don't ask me how I know! LOL!
