                      Oh my word!! First of all elderly people so often are choosing between medicine they REQUIRE utilities and the simplest of NEEDS not wants but needs!! Most have worked hard their entire lives and when they cant anymore they are left on their own!! And secondly I am a stay at home mom with a husband that busts his ass every single day but we are POOR! I've been there so many times . Counting change to put gas in my car to pick my kids up at school and people do change shame you!! Like it's not money !! It is money that we worked very hard to get and it should spend exactly the same as a rich man's 100 dollar bill!!!!

                            everybody accumulates a mountain of change sooner or later (my stepdad had jars and jars of it when we cleaned his house), but pro tip: you can roll it before bringing it to the bank/store.. i mean i can understand it for kids or seniors, but everybody else should be sorting mess on your own time at home.

                              obviously it's wrong to be rude like this to anyone, but i also think it's polite to at least count out your change before paying, so you don't hold up an entire line of people who could be going who knows where... You should always be kind, but you should also always be considerate of others
