I loved the Dilbert about the time he goes tot he store, buys something for,
let's say, $11.87, and he hands the clerk $12.12 (to make the math easy ;^),
and the clerk has a fit, and realizes he is an engineer...
I love to think a move ahead and calculate "easy change" - they look at you
like an idiot, then they type it into the cash register, and say "oh, neat"
when the change come out to an even quarter (or whatever)...
