    I wouldn't let it bother you... there are the occasional a**holes but they are not liked by any so don't fret about it. Plus I usually ask the cashier twice what the amount was because I never know if I heard them right lol :) just have fun and earn some money lol

    Thanks guy. I don't let people get to me when they say something about it. It's the way I was born and I was born that way for an reason. As I kid I used to let it. This is just my first cashier job and really my first job other than at an stable. I was asked if I though it would be a problem, which I don't.

    I have a lisp and work with business professionals on the phone every day taking orders for custom products. When I repeat the entity name, I will say "s as in Sam, f as in frank, p as in Paul" and so on on letters that are easily slurred or misinterpreted over the phone. You could try that tactic, and should have no problem with it.

    I agree, I don't think it will be a problem. Most places I've shopped have had somewhere that the customer could also see the total cost as opposed to having to rely on unreliable speech/hearing. Heck, people are misunderstood every single day. I have a relatively thick southern accent. When I was waiting tables, I would sometimes have people from the new england area or the western states that would be customers and there were certain things that I would say that they had difficulty understanding and they would sometimes say things that I couldn't understand.

    The only thing I can think of that might help is for you to take great care in really enunciating the "n" on the end of the word, so that even if you do say "40" when you mean "14", the added, obvious "n" on the end should clear up any misunderstanding.

    Of course, I don't know the details of your speech problem so it may be the sound of the letter "n" that gives you the problem. I know it still isn't proper, but sometimes you can replace the "n" sound with that of an "m" and still be completely understandable.

    For example: "Your total is fourteem twenty-seven". Most folks wouldn't even notice the difference.
