We shuffled past the display cases full of baked goods and reached the cashier waiting near the end. We handed her the bill and said, “Can we each pay half?”
“Sure,” she answered. The helper next to her reached for a calculator. “That’s okay,” she said, “I can do it in my head.” And she did.
It was unbelievable to see a young person do math in her head without the aid of a cash register to tell her what to think. Kids just don’t do that anymore.
