I've even said out loud that item x was $10 and had the salesperson say, "no, it's $9.99."
I usually get a goofy look on my face when someone says that!
I have had that same thing happen to me many times, and the best way to describe the look on my face is "pity", lol. Pity they are so stupid they can't see it is one cent away from being $10, or pity that they are so dumb, they think I will buy that it is only $9.99. I always round up. even $8.97 is $10 in my head.
