Today, a buttmunch customer brought in $7 worth of pennies I had to count and roll. As I was putting them in the deposite box at the end of my shift, I fumbled and dropped the rolls. All but one broke, spilling their contents on the floor. FML
You do know that in some areas o the work it's illegal to pay with excessive amounts of change... right? I know I'm allowed to smile and tell customers that I'm not legally allowed to take more than 26 pennies in a single transaction. There's a limit on everything else too but I happened to memorize the penny limit because the damn things suck.
The decision of whether to accept pennies lies with the owner or manager of the store. Stores are allowed to refuse certain methods of payment, provided this is made known before the transaction takes place (e.g. a large sign saying "No bills larger than 20"). If the customer has already incurred a debt, I don't think you're allowed to reject a payment unless the method of payment was specified in advance.
Speak your mind, but please try and be respectful.
