David: Subtle, Yet Powerful

I entered the convenience store in a hurry, as I was running late. I grabbed a few items off the shelves without putting much thought into it: can of potato chips, beef jerky, pack of gum, a couple sodas.

I rushed to the counter and put down my selections. As the counter jockey rang them up, I pulled out a few bills, put them on the counter, went back in for a handful of change, counted some out, and added them to the pile.

“That’ll be $3.47,” he said. I pointed to the money, scooped up my purchases, and left.

The topic specified Stupid Human Tricks-level abilities. Exact Change Man was geared toward that.

That doesn't rule the Justice League out - this guy's easily cooler than Aquaman.

I agree - way cooler than Aquaman!

Exact Change Guy was my first thought, until I saw what he paid for all those goodies. Then I thought Cash Register Controller Guy, or Counter Jockey Mind-Meld Guy.
