Today, my first day at my new job, a guy decided to pay all his parking fines in one go. All £2300 of them. Yes, he did decide to pay it in pennies. Wheelbarrows and buckets full of pennies. That's 230,000 pennies. Guess whose job it was to count them. FML

Sounds like a great job -- it's one that can never be outsourced to a foreign country or done by robots.

Coinstar? Yes, I've heard of Coinstar. Oooooohhh. Sorry, robot.

They wouldn't use a thing like Coinstar for this though, because Coinstar takes 10 cents on the dollar. However, a typical bank has a change counter. They aren't that hard to come by, you can get them for your house even. Counts and rolls coins for you.

According to the U.K. coinage act, you do not have to accept more than 20p in 1p or 2p coins if it does not suit you. I researched this specifically so I could use it against customers who came in with bags and bags of them to pay for their groceries.
