meh, I can beat that.

I worked on a Post Office counter a long time ago for a few years. I had a guy who didn't like to pay his annual car road tax so in protest he paid his and wifeys dues in 10p coins

Twice a year, once for each car, he paid the car road tax. At that time the tax was about £125 per car. Ten 10p to the £1.  :blink:   Of 8 counter workers I got nominated as the one to accept the payment. No biggie. Just kept-a-countin. Every time he told me to hurry up  :blahblahblah:   I 'lost count' ;) and had to start again  :lol:. He soon larnt to keep shtum. 

Actually, in the UK its an offence to pay a bill in more coins than necessary unless the receiver allows it. In the UK there is a limit to how many coins in a payment are 'legal' tender, but everyone ignores it. Money be money, roight?

Yup! Don't know if we have a similar rule here...never checked it out!

BTW, I hear there's a coin shortage right now...

I apologize for it.

I started a swear jar!  :ranting2:
