We have a new law in the Philippines, no more short of change in the store and even in the taxi and other establishment that should give the proper amount and not candy or bread. Common in the grocery, taxi and even wet market that seller, vendor or driver would not give the exact change or short of amount of change. For example, the you give 10 pesos and your change should be one pesos and 50 centavos. But sometimes, they only give you one peso as change. According to the new law, you should give the exact if not more than the amount of change. But you know what, in our rural province, exact change is not really practice.

i don't know if they do that intentionally or what,maybe they do it quickly by changing that's why they did give the exact amount

We always get the exact change - I think it's very wrong for people not to give you what you are due.

I'd raise 10 kinds of hell if I was short-changed here. I guess some cultures are very different, because that practice would soon drive a person out of business in the USA.

of course there is difference between not giving the change and in telling you are giving the extra of the change. I guess our culture should level up also
