Most people would take the difference. The thing was poking fun at them because they wouldn't accept the change to give a larger piece.

I do that, too.

Most of the cash registers tell them what to give you back anyway so they don't even have to think anymore.

Reading things like these make me feel so much smarter

Me too!. But you are a bit right on how "rednecks" are here in USA. Or Hillbillies if you wish to call them that. Construction crews are just chock full of ignorant people sometimes. Last project I was on the kids were asking me how to set up thier equipment. God only knows how they found thier way to work. And all those examples I copy pasted of silly Aussies could just as well happen here in USA. In fact I have had a few incidents simular to those.
Mines, refineries, and shipyards are extremely dangerous places. People make mistakes and people die. Australia has it's own share of idiots, of that I am sure. And maybe just a wee bit more than thier fair share? After all.. you are there, Right? JK!

My favorite is number 7.
Personal story:
My first wife lost her set of keys to the house and auto. So when I got home I surrendered my set to her with the stipulation she would get a new set. She neglected this.
Couple weeks later I am home again on the weekend and resting after driving trucks all week. She rings the house and says she has locked her keys in the auto. Well Dang!. So I get a friend to give me a ride to the shopping center and I have a coat hanger and pliers. I fashion a tool to get in through the door seam and unlock the auto. As I am getting in to drive home she walks over to where I have tossed the bent coat hanger, retrieves it and places it under the passenger seat. I ask her what that is for. "In case I lock the keys in the car again" she replies. I started to point out the fallacy of this line of thought when it dawned on me that if I have to explain these things...I really am wasting my breath.
