I heard this on a gameshow: "Answer quickly, what's half of 99?" - Allegedly most people say 44.5. Why? I said 49.5. I halve 100 then take another half off. Or you could halve 90 then add half of 9. Either way, how can people make this mistake?
7 wheelchair athletes have been banned from the Paralympics after they tested positive for WD40.
How do these people get by? I wonder if they all get short changed? Only the other week Aldi tried to give me ฃ10 less change than I should have got - although he did seem a bit confused, he was new there.
I'm not pedantic, I call them all maths.

Vet: "Is it a tom?"
Yorkshireman: "Nay, I've browt it wi' us."

Now if I'd been paying cash I would have noticed.
But I doubt you'd notice if they charged you ยฃ2 for a tins of beans at
a automated checkout, would you.

I just check my change, but I use self service anyway as it's faster, but not all supermarkets have those. My Asda does, but Morrisons only have them for people with mini baskets, and Aldi and Lidl don't have them at all.
Or more likely the checkout worker. It seems to be a standard thing, not noticing you've given them a ฃ20. Some people actually say 20 out loud when they hand one over.
Police arrested two kids yesterday, one was drinking battery acid, and the other was eating fireworks. They charged one and let the other one off.
