Change please: Most often when I go to buy something, and if the total comes to certain amount and then some change, the merchant would usually give me a candy. Now how many candies would I eat in one day?
And what if I donâ€™t want to eat candy? I can understand it if I were to make a phone call from a coin booth, then I need to give change, but at a shop where there is change, why canâ€™t they give me exact change. Isnâ€™t it the responsibility of the merchant to give exact change?
I have refused to accept goods in lieu of money, sometimes letting them keep the change as a mark of protest. Only problem is, they would consider that as a profit, instead of insult.
Here is my new model of protest, if they give me candy, I would accept it, but the next time I shop there, I will redeem those candies, for cash. 😉
Iâ€™d like to know how they would take a dose of their own medicine.
