I just overheard a 23-year-old ask Siri, "What's five times eight?"

Siri took all the 10's out of the deck and replied "zero."

Did they prefix the question with "OK Google"?
May the cards fall in your favor.

Yes, they now know it's Katie Holmes/Tom Cruise's daughter.

Siri is acronym for "Speech Interpretation and Recognition" Interface.

Whereas GOOGLE is
Great Oracle Of Generalized Logic and Expression
Geeky Observers Of Gadgets and Lifestyle Entertainment
Gigantic Online Office for Globalized Labor and Economy
Greenhouse Gas-Obsessed Organization for Global Leadership in Environmental Engineering
Gluten-Free Organic Online Grocery for Lifestyle Enhancement
Guerrilla Online Operation for Global Liberation and Equality
Gorgeous Online Outlet for Glamorous Looks and Elegance
Gadget-Oriented Online Gallery for Lovers of Electronics

Ai is really useful for random acronyms.

I've given up on doing that with young cashiers as it seems to cause more confusion than it is worth. I guess they no longer teach it in Cashiers School. I can't think of the last time I saw anyone under sixty trying to give exact change, and it does seem to slow the transaction rather than speed it up.
I used to save my change but now I simply give it to the next panhandler I see that doesn't irritate me.

A teen aged boy did some work for me and I paid him in cash; part of the payment was a two dollar bill.

As I handed it to him he got a baffled look and holding the two dollar bill he asked me "Is this Canadian?"
"What, me worry?"

The cashiers at my local grocery store seemed to be knowledgeable in proper change counting but I have noticed that problem at other retail stores. The thing that irritates me more than that is if I give someone a $20 and they give me change for 10, Truth be told, I知 usually not paying close attention either until I get back the wrong change. Then I知 not even sure what I gave them. One of us should be paying better attention I guess. : }

The store had a sign saying they were looking for $1 and $5 bills.
I handed a cashier $21 for an $11 purchase. She looked at me funny, proceeded to hand me ten one-dollar bills, and called out to the manager that she needed singles.

The reason he asked Siri what 5 x 8 was, was because I asked if he worked full time. He then did some counting and realized he worked eight hours a day, and knowing he worked five days a week, was trying to figure how many hours a week he worked. When Siri handed him the answer of 40, he said, "I think that's full-time, right?" (He's a salesperson on the floor of an outdoor + sporting goods store.)

All cash registers have the ability to enter cash tendered and have the machine calculate the change for you. But I doubt even the managers know that anymore.

I have also given a few coins here and there to try and get the change to just quarters, or something like that. They are almost always thoroughly confused.

About 30 years ago I paid for something with a credit card, and the swiper wasn't working, so the cashier had to enter the card data manually. It was one of those rare cards that had a three-piece expiration date, 3/19/1995, but the terminal wanted only the month and year. She told me the card wasn't working, so I checked her screen and saw she'd entered the expiry month as "19".
