Incompetent guide

Today I went on the Freedom Trail tour with some out of town guests. Having studied Boston history, I quickly realized that our guide was providing inaccurate information about events, and telling stories of things that never happened. Although she claimed that this was a non-profit organization, she suggested that she should be tipped. A waste of time and money.

The cashier tried to rip me off!

Visiting Boston, I went to the Visitor's Information Center at Boston Common on Friday May 18, 2012, in the early afternoon. I brought a $1 Boston walking map up to the counter, gave the cashier a ten-dollar-bill. I looked away for a second, and she said, "You're all set." I replied, "Huh?" and she said again, "You're all set." I said, "That was a ten," and she just said "mm-hmm" but didn't look me in the eye after that, just gave me the $9 change without a word.

Honest mistake? I THINK NOT! I was a cashier for 8 years and let me tell you I NEVER once mistook a $1 bill for a $10 bill! She was obviously hoping I was sufficiently spaced out like many tourists are, and she could pocket $9. If you go here, AVOID the heavyset young woman cashier with reddish brown hair!!!
