I Am Not An Apple

Today’s NaBloPoMo topic is this, “If you were an apple, which type of apple (Granny Smith, Gala, Red Delicious, etc) would you be and why?” While I appreciate the thoughtful topics, I can’t think of anything to write about today’s topic. If I absolutely have to pick one then I’d pick Red Delicious. Why? I like the way it sounds.

So on to a different topic all together. Something has really been bothering me for a while now and once you find out what it is you’ll probably feel sorry for me for even letting this get to me.

moneyYou’ve purchased something before, with cash, whether it be at a convenient store, fast food, grocery store, or whatever. Have you ever noticed that ALL THE CASHIERS will always hand your change back to you with the coins ON TOP of the bills? This drives me crazy. Why do they do this? It is very inconvenient for the recipient to take the change back this way.

When I was a teenager and working in fast food, my manager told me to always count the change back AND TO PUT THE COINS IN THE CUSTOMER’S HAND AND THEN HAND THEM THE DOLLAR BILLS. Of course, this was all before debit cards.

But even in today’s time, some people still use and pay cash. Please, for the love of God, stop handing me the change back with the coins on top of the dollar bills.

I think from now on I am going to make it my mission to teach cashiers the proper way to hand back change. Next time someone hands me change like that I am going to tell them the proper way to do it.

So that’s it then, thanks for reading,

  1. I’ve noticed that too and i’ve thought about it before and in my opinion there could be several reasons. either employees are not trained properly or that is exactly how the store has trained them to give change, some employees may do it out of spite if a customer pisses them off pr some employees may think they’re doing you a favor by putting the coins on top that way the bigger bills would be weighed down with the coins and they won’t fall.. i can’t decide which one it is 🙂

  2. That drives me absolutely bananas! I put loose change in my pocket, while I put bills in my wallet. And even worse? They sometimes put the receipt BETWEEN the coins and bills. Ugh.
