I get annoyed when the money comes out of the ATM all higgeldy-piggledy.

Start with the four pennies and then the two dimes and next the two one dollar bills, or one two dollar bill. I can see the amount of change in the cash register window, so she should be counting it back to be so it totals what the register is showing what my change should be.

BTW, how come there are very few male cash register workers. They are always female. It is the males that are the baggers. I wonder if it is because they pay females less than a male in the same job? And cash register does pay more than a bagger.

I do exactly the same as Andy as described.

I also don't like cashiers giving back cash change and the receipt together. I realize it saves them time to do this in one motion and the most practical way to hand out change and receipt. I don't think there's any other way. I remember back when cashiers used to ask if you wanted the receipt thrown in the bag...

Huh? I see both in every capacity in every retail store I walk into, even in this small town. Males are not just baggers.

Me too. ATM cash never comes out all even.

Not in this area. And the baggers are usually elderly men who are supplementing their retirement. Or sometimes they are elderly women.

Interesting. Both cashiers and baggers are usually high school or college students here. And both genders do both jobs.

In our Market Basket, I see mostly women but some men (including handicapped ones) as cashiers. Most baggers are men. Some seniors and some teens. SO always wants to get into the register line that has her favorite bagger. Then she tells him what to do anyway.

In my MB, the old men bag, teen boys collect the carts in the parking lot, and the cashiers are all girls. If it real slow at your register, the girls are expected to go to a line that is long and help bagging there. When males are bagging they are expected to cover two registers that are next to each other. You may not think so, but they do have a system. And it works.
