if you're wondering why i went so far over a $10 subtotal...
i wasn't planning to buy the newspapers. the cashier started scanning items before my card. therefore the sale prices did not come up. after my coupons, he gave me the total before pressing total. i gave him $5 ecb, then he hit total, the sale prices came off and i was in the negative. so i grabbed the newspapers from my boyfriend (waiting in line behind me) and added them to my order. then i had to refigure his order as well. thats the way it goes sometimes...
