Keep The Change

I ran through the drive-thru the other day at one of the fast food restaurants here in town and something happened to me that has happened before and I'm not really sure how to react to it. (I know, very long sentence)

The pimply-faced young man that handed me change back from my twenty dollar bill dropped three coins that totaled 36 cents on the ground instead of in my hand.

Now.

What?

There was no way I could pick the change up because my car was too close to the side of the building. I couldn't pull up or back up because I had cars on both ends.

The kid in the window shrugs his shoulders and says "Oops", but doesn't offer to replace my change that he didn't place securely in my hand. I mean, wouldn't it be easier for them to send someone out and pick up the dropped coins and then drop them back in the register?

I know it was only 36 cents, but it all adds up, I didn't tell the kid he could keep the change.

this has happened to me and because of the smirk on the girls face I had my daughter get out and ask the two cars behind me to back up so that I could retrieve my money. the drive thru girl was not happy because she said I was screwing up her flow. I said then you should of given me my 3 quarters in my hand.

I would have sat there and not moved until he gave me my change.

The change I "almost received" one time went to the ground, but, thank goodness, the employee got more change out and gave it to me. You're exactly right, though; it's almost impossible to get out of the car at one of those places to get change that falls on the ground.

I agree with Sheila. They wouldn't have served anyone else until they coughed up my change!!! It isn't your fault the kid at the window had butter on his fingers.
