I took my elderly Mother to a doctor appointment today, and to a couple of stores. At one place, my Mother bought something that cost $11.03, and handed the cashier a $20 bill. Then she said: 'wait a minute, I have some change', and set $1.03 in change on the counter. The woman COULD NOT figure out how much change to give my Mother. She was doing.... something.... behind the cash register for a LONG time, and my Mother finally said: 'you should give me $10 in change'. More ...stuff... going on behind the register. The woman finally handed my Mother $9.03. She actually picked up the 3 pennies off the counter, and handed them BACK to my Mother. This wasn't an illegal immigrant, or even a legal immigrant. This was a mid to late 20's year old American woman. There is NO HOPE for America.
