Well? Was it wrong for her to hope for some change?

"I'd like to see her behind bars."

This is too often a sentiment of people for persons with acute failures in judgment - put the nutty people in jail, where i don't have to think about them.

Crazy people live and walk among us.  They don't all need to be put behind bars.  Appropriate counseling, and perhaps a probationary sentence, shiat, I don't know, but clearly, this lady isn't a criminal deserving to be removed from society.  She needs help - this could just be the event that helps her enter not "the system," but a system designed to treat needs stemming from mental health issues.

Or she could have been whacked out on drugs, I don't know.

I was thinking of creating a Florida app that randomizes headlines like a mad lib.  Lets try one:

Florida  <gender>in custody for allegedly <verb>-ing while under the influence of <popular over the counter medication> and demanding <object costing less than $5> from <fictional character> while wielding <whimsical awkward to carry object>.

Then we can see how many come true for the remainder of 2014.

I don't like change. I usually pay with my platinum credit card, or if I do pay with cash, I tell the store owner to keep it. Doesn't take too long before that store owner recognizes you the next time, and you get a smile and special treatment, because they know you as a nice, generous person.

How demented do you have to be to go ANYWHERE with a jar of coins? Those suckers are heavy.

Meth.  I had a friend get out on that stuff, and he came by my house, ostensibly, to visit, but ultimately, to ask for money.  Ostensibly, for gas... OSTENSIBLY!

But I didn't have any money.  I did have several small boxes of pennies, so I shoved them at him, and recommended he leave.  He said something about how he would offer to trade the clerk at the gas station for gas using something and the coins... it was weird, farked up, and I ultimately had to shout at him, "NO!, you dumbass!  Buy the gas with the goddamned pennies!"
 
2014-04-24 12:27:42 AM
Was she actually *purchasing* something?  If not, the store owner had every right to tell her to fark off.

If so... well, I guess he could have refused her service on the grounds of paying with coins while brown, or something.

/doesn't excuse the behavior, though.

That actually pays dividends. For several years I went to one particular restaurant, paid cash and always said "Keep the change." I one day went to pay only to realize I'd forgotten my wallet. The owner said, "Don't worry about it." and tore up the check. The next time I went, I "tipped"  him the amount of the previous check. Still the good will was more than worth it.

Of course ya dumb biatch, I'm pretty sure "store" and "bank" are two different places. Or find a coin star. I would have taken her stupid jar of coins and smashed it in the parking lot, especially if she got all pissy and started messin with my store.
 
2014-04-24 12:35:27 AM
Had one of those come in our store the other day. She wants something outside what EBT will pay for, gathers random things from her kitchen, comes to the store and dies her damnest to return them for cash. She will scream, at the top of her lungs, for cash. A half-eaten jar or peanutbutter, a mostly-empty box of cereal, some random, half-eaten sandwich meats, and some mustard. All of which runs to about 20 bucks. Can't do it, sorry. Fark off. Doesn't matter how much you scream at me, I'm not giving you money for stuff you were going to throw away. Filling in for someone else at a register about 20 minutes later, I got her on the way out, too. She had a fat wad of hundreds. I hate people.

I'm pretty sure that whole 'aggressively pointing at the owner' ,'knocking items off of the counter' and 'screaming racial slurs and threatening to kill him' was all just part of an elaborate plot designed to get her close enough to punch that 7 year old. (who was probably eating crackers)

Haven't seen one since I moved here, so dunno on that one. Hell, go to any dollar store, and grab those assorted bags of rolls for coins. A little time consuming but won't rob you blind like CoinFart.

Yeah, it would have been smarter to be a non-tipping, stingy dick all those years and saved $3.99 - and had the owner call the cops instead. In most states, "defrauding an innkeeper" is a go-to-jail-in-cuffs-right-now offense.

This. I avoided them like the plague until they figured this out. No problems now. And they kindly didn't keep my foreign coins and returned them to me.

Not strictly. There is a 'Drew Curtis' who ostensibly runs a website called 'Fark' and drinks a beer called 'Heineken', but there is great controversy over whether the identity is cloned at secret facilities in Kentucky, or simply interchangeably replaced a la 'Lassie' or the black guy in Hogans Heroes.

I've been in your situation, minus the overtipping.  I gave the manager/owner my smartphone as collateral and promised to either be back within an hour or call with my credit card # within 24 hrs (if I'm away from home). They've always agreed to this, and I've always gotten my phone back.
