Accidentally Overheard at the Grocery Store

[Customer A]: “That should be fifty-six dollars… if I can do math, that is.”

[Clerk]: (jokingly) “Hmm, how worried should I be?”

[Customer B]: (jokingly) “Well, let’s see… two plus two equals five!”

[Clerk]: “…for sufficiently large values of ‘two’.” (muses) “Y’know, with rounding error, that’s potentially a valid result.”

[Customer A]: “Depends on the algorithm.”

[Customer B]: “I love shopping here!”
