A Quarter Short on Temper

Once I put a dollar bill in a money changer but got back only three quarters. I took the three quarters to the attendant and made a fuss, also an accusation. He apologized and walked me back to the changer where he picked up my fourth quarter off the ground. He said that sometimes the changer spit the quarters out so hard they bounced out of the tray. I was apologetic and reminded again that sometimes things are not what they seem.
