Down to the last cent

26 December 2011. Visiting Florida to stay with son and daughter-in-law. My wife, my son and I visited Publix the supermarket in Delray Beach. Only I was carrying cash and I had said I would pay the groceries bill. In my back pocket I had \$250 exactly. The three of us then started to buy things independently, more-or-less without consultation. No-one was keeping a record of how much we were spending. We bought 44 items between us. At the cash-out the bill, including Sales Tax, came to \$249.99. I received one cent in change. Seemed pretty rum to me!
