In order to get to the nearest Babies R Us, you have to take a toll road. It's fifty cents each way, and there are several toll booths. Some are exact change, and some have cashiers. The last time I went there, I only had dollar bills, so I went to a cashier. As I was driving away, I noticed that she had given me one quarter and one nickel instead of two quarters. Not a big deal. I used to work at McDonald's, and occasionally a nickel or two would get mixed in with the quarters because of their similar size.

Interestingly enough, the same exact thing happened today when we went to Babies R Us. The way we figure, if these cashiers are pocketing twenty cents per car coming through their toll booth, they could easily walk away at the end of the day with ten bucks in their pocket. Honestly, how many people do you think are going to throw their cars into reverse on a busy road for twenty cents? Pretty fucking smart.

I wish I had thought of this when I used to work the drive-thru at McDonald's!
