First, a little background...

I was at the market the other day and bought a few things.
Nice lady cashier, not the one in the pic, but you get the idea.



"Your total is $9.02"
Without even thinking, I just hand her a ten.
She reaches over and grabs two pennies from the little cup thingy.



Then she punches in $10.02 for the amount I gave, and hands me a dollar bill as change. Excellent! She didn't have to bother counting out coins. I don't have a bunch more change jangling around in my pocket. Granted, this isn't something that's gonna change the world. But it is a nice little convenience.

This got me to thinking. I almost always toss any pennies I get in my change into these cups, but never think to use them when I'm paying for something.

So, pit...

How many of you take a penny when you need one?
How many of you toss your pennies in when you get them as change?
Do you even notice these cups?
Do the stores you shop at use them?

due to the fact that our prices include taxes and are usually priced at x.49/99 we don't really have a use for them.

I usually throw my pennies at tramps, if they survive the blows to the head then I deem them worthy of my change.

I've noticed them in petrol station's. Not really had the course to use them as yet but I think it's a great idea. Pesky change jangling around your pocket is annoying, especially when you probably have the right change on you but you just can't be bothered counting it out!

*Phew* That was a long sentance...

Yea, always after something for nothing.

I'm curious as to where this lovely lady works. There isn't any stock on the shelves behind her. That's one of the best places to place stock, and she and/or her manager really aren't making the best of this opportunity.

Good call, man.
When I did a Google image search, she came up.
I liked the way she looks, but the empty shelves kinda put me off.
My guess is, it's a generic marketing photo.

I figured most of the Pit wouldn't even notice.
But I was hoping at least one person might...

There's no money cup thingy, but people over in Spain aren't as tight assed, if it comes up to 9.02 and you give them a 10 they just give you a euro back. And if it comes to 8.98 and they give you a euro back no-one complains.

I leave money all the time, but I almost never take it... Only if I'm short a couple cents when purchasing something new. I usually end up giving the cashier a $20 for an item that costs $1 though, then I feel like a dick..

I regularly take and leave. After working in a grocery store for a while, you realize what a tremendous convenience they are.
