i’ve noticed that if the change i’m due back from the one in my local co-op is anything less than 30p, the machine dispenses it all as a cascade of pennies, 2ps and 5ps. i decided to start using other places and of the ten super- and minimarkets, tesco expresses etc, within a 5 mile radius of my house, all of them do the same thing. i didn’t even want the sandwiches and dime bars i bought for the experiments so i had to bin them all.
it’s pretty obvious they dispense change in this manner so you’ll be like fuck that and leave it in the tray - i have seen other people’s change left behind many time.
Really hate it when people come to pay in a shop or pub and have loads of small change and are all like ‘oh look at all this change, looks like I was in the pub last night, wa hey!’ or some such. I don’t care, just fucking pay me.
Dunno I was in Co-op yesterday and the previous occupant of the self-service till had left all their change there and it was quite a bit. There was definitely a quid and assorted silver in there. I just left it, didn’t know what to do with it.
You wouldn’t believe the amount of people i see in metro stores and supermarkets who get to the front of a queue and then decide to check their banking app to see how much money’s left in their account.
Yeah I think it was a group of schoolkids who were at the till before me so… was thinking they might run back in and get it. Either that or someone else can trouser it and they will have learnt a very valuable life lesson.
