78, I said that countless times and each time being given a look of disgust. Sometimes even got change thrown at my head all while trying to keep my composure. Some people are nuts, I pay by the good ol bills, and if it's raining, they guy keeps the change so he don't have to count it out in the rain haha
22 degrees Celcius is just over 70 degrees Fahrenheit. Given that weather, I'd have enjoyed taking my time counting the change before giving her the pizza and heading back to work. That brings up a good point, actually. Did the woman expect her pizzas to stay warm while OP was counting out the change.
What I want to know is who the fuck (besides those people) keep sandwich bags of nickels and pennies?
Same here! It keeps loose change organized for when i finally go the bank with it all. I don't have to roll them myself b/c my bank doesn't charge to use the counting machine, but last time I went, had over $300. Will probably have just as much when I go in this week.
Actually in Canada, before pennies lost value altogether and are no longer accepted as currency, it was illegal to pay in pennies past 25 cents but many people were not aware of that. So as a cashier, I could refuse a customers' currency if I counted more than 25 pennies.
Actually 75, unless you can cite the specific law, I very much doubt there are laws against using legal tender in certain quantities. It's called legal tender because you are required by law to accept it as payment. Now, there might be exemptions built into the law that say over a certain amount, you are not required to accept it, but that puts it up to the person receiving payment. It makes it legal to refuse the payment, not illegal to tender the payment.
as 71 states there used to be a law in Canada that limited the amount of pennies permitted to pay with to 25 cents. No shit you're gonna pay with "legal tender" but paying huge amounts with change is ridiculous and obviously there will be actual federal laws against that. Of course, the US would be an exception to anything smart.
Really, "obviously there are federal laws against it"? So please tell me, is it considered an infraction, a misdemeanor, or a felony? What are the fines or jail time for breaking such a law? If the business owner accepts the payment, are they considered an accessory to the crime?
112, please educate me then, since I did ask for specific details about this law *against* paying with too much change. If there is a law against it, it is prohibited and there is a criminal penalty for it. However, I expect that its much more likely that, as I said previously, that there are exemptions in laws, and that these exemptions allow you to refuse payment over a certain amount in change. That would mean that there is no law against paying too much change, but also no obligation too accept that much change.
I would have refused it. I delivered pizza in my younger days and mostly made pretty good money at it ($100 or more in a 4-5 hour shift). I worked for a small authentic Sicilian restaurant and not only would the owner have backed me up on that he would have put them on the do not serve list forever.
I manage a Papa John's and would have done the same in a heartbeat. Though I wouldn't say refuse the payment, just don't stand there and count it either! We'll free out the order, make a note not to deliver there, then run the change through a coin star and make it your tip :)
