Default Typical Friday

Woman comes in, grabs a six-pack of cheap beer. Comes to my counter and says "you're gonna hate me" and produces a Zip-Lok bag of pennies. I calmly told her no, she was gonna hate ME because I wouldn't take the pennies unless they were rolled. I gave her wrappers.

Guy comes in, grabs a six-pack of Heineken, was trying to talk to his friend at the same time. Not paying attention.....A six of Corona falls out and breaks all over the floor. He had a fit when I told him he bought it.

Crackhead comes in, says she needs a favor, she doesn't have enough for her 'glass rose'(1.25) . Told her no deal. So she asks a KID(maybe 12) in line behind her for the money. I lit into her and told her that she could NOT ask any other customers for money. They do this all the time. Funny, they have money for crack. I will NOT let them 'slide' for any amount, not even a penny. I hate that I have to sell the things.

Just another Friday in the 'hood.

You have my complete and total respect and admiration.......

I dealt with inbreds, rednecks, and the occasional "gangster", but I never dealt with crackheads or anyone to those extremes.

Chin up, one day soon they will quit making pennies

I can only hope! It costs more to make pennies than they're worth. I do hope they get rid of them.

Nah, they just keep chaging what they make them out of; using cheaper metals.

I wonder if they've considered doing another run of steel pennies. It's been a while. (I also wonder if it's still cost-efficient any more.)



But I agree. DEATH TO THE PENNY! After all, a penny saved is... a penny.

The US Mint can't get the American people to accept a dollar coin, there's no way they could ever get them to part with their precious pennies!

I love pennies, where else can you get cheap paperweight?

Heck, in Canada they got us to accept a TWO dollar coin. I'm sure they can persuade us to get rid of the penny. Maybe the nickel too. Rounding everything to the nearest ten cents would get rid of those stupid $9.99 prices that drive me crazy. But that's a rant for another day.

Did you know that Mr. Britney Spears (Kevin Federline) has been out campaigning to keep the penny in circulation!???? I mean, really! And I only save one penny once a year - to play on my old record player when I listen to my vinyl albums so I can still listen to the ones that skip.

That didn't work in Australia. We got rid of the 1 and 2 cent pieces quite a few years ago. So all we have are 5 / 10 / 20 / 50 cents plus $1 and $2 coins. But we still see silly prices like $9.99 everywhere. The cashiers will round up (or down as the case maybe) if customer is paying by cash, the full amount will be charged if paying by credit card.

It would get rid of the .99 cent part however it won't get rid of the pennies. After taxes, the pennies will come back in play
