Why does a shop attendant INSIST on putting my paper money UNDERNEATH my change, or my receipt UNDERNEATH my loose coinage? Because nine times out of ten I have a shopping bag in the other hand, and I have to use my lips to slide the receipt/paper money from under the coins without the whole lot spilling on the floor.

What the hell is wrong with folk!?!?! :mad:

Oh I hate that. I just screw the whole thing up with the coins in the middle and stuff the entire paper ball into my back pocket lol. It really is a pain in the arse.

I tend to pay with be CCard for everything..
I kinda hate having loose change, it's too easy for my brother to "borrow".

I suppose they do it because its easier to hand over, but it would help the customer if they did it the other way.

Would it be easier if they only gave you the loose change and kept the notes? http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/mischievous.gif

I've had to fumble with change and paper money after checking out at a store many times before. Sometimes I have to drop my change in my wallet and stuff/crumple the bills in also. "Bah! I'll worry about it when I get out to the car" I always think. :D

I take the change seperate, I dont even give them the option of dumping it in my hand.

Maybe, tlr online, they do it that way, incase the paper money gets blown away? hehe

Of course that is where the habit (of the personell) comes from. Plus, i think they hope you leave it there as a tip.

I once had a really nice variation of this occurring to me. I had a coffee with a delicious piece of pie. The waitress brought the bill and put it on the table. It was around 6 Guilders ( say 3,- today). I had no smaller than 100 Guilders (say 50,- today) , and layed it on the note. I pointed her to it. She placed her big cash-bag ON the bill and the note, and started grabbing the change out of it and handed it to me, took her bag and walked away.

I gave her a few minutes, then left the place with a grateful feeling of the fine consumption in my stomach and 47,- richer. :D

It's really annoying when they do that and your other hand is full. Unfortunately here in Australia it is impossible to scrunch the coins up in the notes and shove them in your pocket as our notes are made of plastic and don't scrunch.

We invented the plastic money and other countries are now getting us to make their notes as they do not wear out like normal paper money. Clever idea but it's a real bummer when you want to fold notes that don't fold. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif

haha I've done it a few times when I'm in a hurry (I work in a cafe) but most of the time I hand over the notes first and wait for them to grab it then hold out their coins to take when they're ready.... I find that if you do it that way then it is easier for them to check to see if they have the right change
