This morning I stopped by Dunkin Donuts to get a coffee, a sandwich, and 2 donuts. Total was $6.03. With all the change sitting in the tip cup on the counter, the goddamn clerk couldn't reach in and grab 3 pennies . . no, she just had to give me the 97 cents change
I'm the kind of person that hates weighting myself down with loose change in my pockets, but I'm forced to carry some around (when I remember), because stores will not examine how purchases ring out. Why can't they lower things just a bit so the total price doesn't come to $4.04, or $10.02??
I mean, I guess this would be unrealistic, but I just wish. I think my gas mileage has suffered because of all the weight of coins in my car.
And they're never prepared to give you the change back . . they'll give you a bunch damn nickels because they don't have any quarters in the till, or they'll give you back 17 singles because they don't have a 10 and a 5. Then they look at you like "is 20 the smallest you have?".
