Little Annoyances

Popped over to the Eckerd's over the weekend to change a dollar for laundry. Get to the front of the line, and the woman there tells me they won't open the register for non-purchases.

Now, I'll grant that she did make change when the next person in line bought something. And her argument that the store isn't a cash machine is fairly persuasive. But ATMs don't dispense quarters. (Yes, banks do; I usually do that and just forgot to get a roll of quarters this time around when my supply ran low.)

It just seems that, on a not-busy weekend afternoon, that a convenience store should be, y'know, convenient.

Well, it's sold by the pack there, which runs 55 cents. Kinda counter-productive. And frankly, I was too dumbfounded to think of that -- every other convenience store I'd ever been in would let you change a buck or two with no problems.

Note to self... still need to get roll of quarters from bank.
