Cashiers used to love a pile of change. ‘Oh, you’re a lifesaver!’

I think I’d much prefer that than e.g. someone paying for something costing 62p with a twenty pound note.

When I used to work in a shop, change management (which is ironically now pretty much my job title :rofl: ) was pretty much the most stressful part of the job.

Start your shift with a fifty quid ‘float’ - first customer comes in and buys a can of Coke with a twenty - you’re playing catch up for the rest of the day…

what does this mean?

oh you can use those coins for the amount on the right?

Yes, the coin value on the left can be used to pay for anything up to the value on the right (although places may still accept if you’re trying to pay a higher amount, they’re not legally obliged to)

Don’t think I’ve ever seen a 25p coin. Are they special editions or something?
