COIN OVER NOTE
Maybe you have never noticed. Maybe you have toleranceof saintly proportions and maybe these thingsdon’t irritate you. But it has been pointed out that everytime you buy something in a supermarket, the cashier willhand you your change, first with the notes and then thecoins on top of them.This means that unless you can perform some superhumanfeat, you either have to crumple it all up into a ball orelse perform the singularly pointless task of bringing yourother hand over to separate the notes from the coins. Anddon’t let yourself be persuaded into thinking that this is amere logistical error. This is a conspiracy. They do it to annoythe hell out of you.
