Checking out of a hotel in Hilton Head this morning.  Needed change for the valet.  Stopped by a coffee shop to see if she could break a $20.

Me:  “Can you break a 20?  I need it for the valet.  I’ll buy something if you need.
Her: (after opening the drawer). “No, I don’t have a 20.”  (I can clearly see a ten and a couple of fives and it’s clear she didn’t understand me)
Me:  “No, I need change for a 20.”
Her:  “I don’t have anything.”
Me: (Grabbing a bottle of water).  “If I wanted to buy this bottle of water with a 20 dollar bill would you be able to sell it to me?”
Her:  “Sure.”
Me:  “Then why can’t you change my 20 dollar bill?”
Her: (Clearly confused and mulling this over)
Me: “You know what?  Just give me this bottle of water.”

She sells me the water and gives me 17 dollars in change.  I leave.

HH is a deeply weird place from a socioeconomic side, especially when it comes to the service industry.

Good thing you didn't have to explain a mulligan to her or get change for your BudFat

I could explain it to her, but I can't make her understand it

Felt that way when I had to explain PCIe lane polarity inversion tolerance to someone today...

slightly different than explaining "changing a $20"

I catch a lot of people fumbling over making change or knowing what to do when you give them 20.50 when the bill is 15.50.

akin to dipsticks not being able to change out rapidly and accurately, one profession that i find impressive is dealers in Vegas... Craps, Roulette, and Blackjack specifically... with blackjack perhaps the most impressive when all the bases are full and the game is stretched with splits, double downs, ect... running those numbers through your head isn't difficult don't get me wrong.... but doing it as fast as they do and one right after the other, flush, do it again, is just plain impressive.

i've rarely witnessed mistakes with the weekend mid evening dealers.  i've seen some new dealers jack it up playing off peak, but they were pulled with a wicked quickness by their handlers when they did.

honestly, i think they may have simply memorized combinations so it happens at a glance.

I have no idea how dealers at a Vegas crap table keep it all straight, especially if the shooter is hitting numbers, the punters are 3 deep around the table, and chips are flying all over the place. I could listen to a good stickman do his thing all night.

Agree on the dealers. Never really played craps but play a little blackjack.  They make a mistake every now and then but it’s few and far between and in some chaotic environments sometimes too.
