虽然我们都习惯了money money,但实际上在英语日常用语里,许多关于钱的说法并不会直接说money~

wrong change =找错钱

Give someone the wrong change给某人找错钱

The cashier gave me the wrong change. I gave her 10 dollars to pay for a $5.00 book, and she only gave me 2 dollars back.

收银员给我找错钱了。我买了5美元一本的书,给了她10美元,但她只给我找了2美元。

too much change =多找钱

give someone too much change给某人多找了

If a cashier gives you too much change, you'd better give it back.

如果收银员给你多找钱了,最好还回去。

short change =少找钱

I think I was shortchanged in the restaurant, because I've only got $10 in my wallet when I should have $20 .

我感觉饭店给我少找钱了,因为我钱包里只有10美元,本来应该有20的呀。

或者,可以说

not give someone enough change =少找钱

He did not give enough change, and people did not notice.

他没有找够钱,人们也没有注意到。

loose change =零钱、散钱

I have some loose change in my pocket. I'll use it to buy something in the vending machine.
