the Kiwi mart across the street from Larrys always gives the right change
I tested this today.

I went to the Kiwi Mart.

I selected two bottles of water. Total cost $1.10

I handed over one dollar and one thousand riel.

They owed me fifteen cents.

That's 600 riel.

They handed me 500 riel in change and this receipt.

Kiwi marts exchange rate is 4100 iirc and you paid in $ + Riel, you end up losing out on money when you do that, best of just paying in $ or paying in Riel

Why doesn't the receipt show how much I paid in dollars and riel and how much was returned in change in dollars and riel? The clerk knew if he input all that, it would say 600 riel due back.

why you asking me, did you not watch him type in $1 + 1000riel into his Till computer screen, it converts everything and it then comes up with the exact change to be given, its nothing to do with the clerk its all in the automated computer system

The receipt says I paid the exact amount and no change was given at all. 'Tis a lie.

Maybe you selected the wrong bottles.
Can you do this again not being so selective?
