Have you ever paid for something using pennies?

I have paid for something using pennies before. The cashier was not happy with me. The cashier had to count every penny I had. It was a pain to count because it was five dollars. That is five hundred pennies she had to count. How crazy is that. I hate to put anyone through that but pennies are all I had at the time. What can I say I was broke. I try not to this often actually I try to avoid paying in pennies as much as possible.

No worries money is money even if it ticked the cashier off.Next time to avoid this you can go swap it out at the bank for bills.If it were not for people like you the cashier would not have a job!I pay for my coffee alot with small change,and could care less. If I know its upsetting them ,I will be sure to use it once again. I think we all have been in this type of situation .Don't worry like ,I stated above money is money.It all spends the same.

Do not get lazy for counting money,money will come in anyway but we should need to know how to save it.but more coins make inconvenient feeling.But lots of peoples working hard for that inconvenient only.

I did it before like for 2 to 3 times. And I can read exhaustion and displeased from the face of the store cashier. Lol. I don't have much choice that time for it's the only money I got. Hehe. But now I'm trying my best to avoid such scenario. It can bring me shame. shadow41
