at least you got change back. but your right todays simple math is like law of physic equation. the grocery store are the worst. i've seen the cashier finger count behind the back.
I used to try and make things easier for drive through people (both with the math and dealing with coins) by giving them the change amount (say it was 17.65, I'd give them 20.65, simple to figure 3.00 back). But I found that more often than not, that confused them even more. I'd get 0.35 back in coins and some bills that were either a dollar over or a dollar under what I was supposed to get. I TRIED giving the extra dollar back once and I thought the kid was going to short circuit. My wife told me it's because they likely already punched in $20.00 and the register was telling them what change to give me, and I put a wrench in their process by adding the 0.65 to it. So much for trying to be nice.

I once worked with a carpenter who had to finger count in base 7.
go to lowes, hd or a lumber place and listen to day laborer tell the yard guy how to cut the lumber. this is the day labor words " i need 5 long 2x4 (x meaning "x" not "by") with number 5, 1 half line and 5 little lines. what it translate, is the laborer want 5 2x4s cut at 5 3/4 feet.

True to an extent. Easier to DIY with the work but some parts are gonna be hard to find, depending on how old and what it is. If its got a Chevy 350 you bet they're still making parts. A Chrysler 340? might be harder to find.
So you go down to the 318 or up to the 383.
