holy nickels batman!

i bought a can of pop from the pop machine (soda for americans eh) and put in a $2 coin. it's bad enough that they're charging a dollar for a can of pop that i KNOW retails in the 20-30 cent range, but did the damn machine have to give me my change in nickels?

    That is the WORST! NYC subway metrocard machines give out ridiculous amounts of coins as well, although as an American, I tend to think that dollar coins are ridiculous.

    PS: Some of us call it pop, too.

    Well, I call it soda, and I enjoyed the funny looks I got when I called it soda when I was in Toronto. And one of my favorite stories is the french fries at Taco Bell story. Fries Bell Grande!? Absurd!

    Anyway. Balls to those nickels.

    Yes, yes it DID have to give you your change in nickels. It's some new legislation. Dimes, quarters and loonies are going to become illegal any day now.
