I’ve made only two transactions so far today, in both cases I got screwed over by the lack of change in the till. Will this ever change?
1/ Green Coffee
Met with someone, wanted to buy them a tea and myself a coffee and raisin cake. Bill was 22 PLN so I handed over a 50. They asked for drobny so I gave 2 PLN. They asked for a 20 PLN note as well, I didn’t have one but the guy I was with did, so he ended up paying 20 and myself 2!
2/ Coffee Heaven
Bought a hot chocolate, blue cheese wrap and a muffin. Bill was a ridiculous 28.70. Gave her the same 50 as before. She asked for drobny, I said I only had 1.50. She ignored that and asked if the change could be 10 grosz less than it should be. Having little choice, I agreed and got back a 10 note, two 5 coins and 1.20. At least the wrap was warm this time and the service has improved a lot since they removed the queen of misery.
Notes to self:
a) Must try saying “no” next time and see what happens.
b) Must spend less time in coffee bars.
