Have An Opinion?
Often enough I was happy when being short of 1 cent, the shop owner would take it out of the "leave one, take one" box to close the sale. Numerous times, have I put one cent in the same box, knowing that this mishap can hit everyone.I usually shop only at the local convenience store and I have a very good relation with the shop owner for my daily groceries.I may act differently in a large chain or department store where I know that the managers usually have less than no understanding and goodwill. There, I am adamant about the right change because I will not get the items if I am unable to pay cash for it.To sum up: I will gladly do it in a small, independent shop because the staff is usually much more customer oriented then in a Macy's where profit maximization is the key word.
Most family owned stores will let you buy an item if you're a cent short. The problem comes when you go to a chain store or something of sort, where the clerk needs to have every cent accounted for in order to keep their job. Getting to your question, no I do not. I even tell them to keep it, so I don't have to carry trash in my wallet. But 99.9% of the time I pay with a card, so there never is any change, because I hate paper and metal currency, and all the germs that come with them from thousands of hands that held them. At least one of those hands had poop on it, I bet you.
Generally not, no, but I think your point is very valid - most shops wouldn't let you off, if you were a penny short. A lot of the shops I regularly use, I know the owners, and they round it down to the nearest five pence a fair bit of the time. I find I'm getting less coppers in my change in the last couple of years, as more and more shops cease using them to price.
My local convenience store actually has a penny plate next to the register. Patrons leave a penny or m two and take a penny or two as needed to make the amount exact. At that place I would not care. In general I do not care. A penny is not worth my effort.
It’s Not About The Penny, It’s About Receiving The Correct Change, A Penny Could Be A Dollar Or More... Cashier Once Tried Short Changing Me By $20.00, I Had To Literally Teach Him How To Count Back Change The Correct Way To Prove I Am Right, After Much Arguing He Saw I Am Right, And Gave Me The Money... It Is About Principal...
Yes I have except in my experience it was the manager who short changed me $5 and when I said this to her she gave me $3 of the $5 that she owed me so she still ended up short changing me
Well here in Canada it happens all the time. We round up or down now. We don’t have pennies anymore.
It's not worth it.I wouldn't mind if 1p's were phased out.
I definitely didn't think of it your way I will be taking that into consideration thank you but one Penny I didn't mind now I might. thanks
I wouldn’t notice tbh
Yes I will ask too.
