    .....Then get out the little change purse.....I only use that when the line behind me is getting unruly and in a rush....

    Lets see that .36 cents?
    So that's...
    3 dimes and a nickel and a penny...."
    Or
    A quarter and a dime and a penny?
    Or
    5 nickles and a dime and a penny..
    Or
    7 nickels and a penny.....
    Or
    OK.... lets just use 2 quarters and you give me change......
    ...

    So your THAT guy!

    I was in Kroger and entered the pin to my card wrong three times running. I don't know. Bad day. Loose synapse. Who knows. Anyway, a guy two people back handed the girl his credit card and said, it's on me. P.O.'d me something fierce. I told him there were 8 other check lanes and he could pick one if he was in a hurry. I might have trouble with my pin several more times now.

    Bought gas again with a $100 bill last night. Bought $20 worth of gas so four $20's is change. Can't make it more easy than that. Got the correct change to. I'll make it easy like that in the future.

    Thanks for bringing this up.
    Just discussing this is a good reminder to pay attention to everything........
