I saw you—well, I saw your letter, to I Saw You—ranting about getting exact change back at a coffeehouse, which meant extra pennies to put in your pocket. I’m glad this is evidently the worst thing you’re experiencing. It seems clear that you’ve never worked at jobs where you were expected to have your cash drawer zero out at the end of your shifts. Lucky you. One suggestion: If this bothers you so much, bring extra change when you’re out and about. Meanwhile, please leave those who provide services that we enjoy and largely take for granted off of your public gripe list. The multi-hour commute time for them is bad enough.
