Man Cited After Paying w/ 2500 Pennies


#1

Well, I thought the penny was still a legal form or tender. I guess they wanted them rolled.


#2

I read somewhere a long time ago that businesses are not forced by law to accept tender they don't feel is good. Such as badly mangled bills or an abundance of coins.


#3

Dumping pennies all over the fucking floor and demand that staff count them is indeed disorderly conduct.

On a related note, I just went out and bought groceries, paying only with nickels. I was being friendly. The cashier counted them patiently.
