$4.72 at Subway Sun, 01/8/12 2:06 PM (permalink)
I had to to test-drive my truck after working on it so I headed into town and stopped at Subway to grab a sandwich (I was not at all dressed to go sit down somewhere), where I paid the $5.28 total with a $10 bill.
My change was a pair of $2 bills, a half-dollar, 2 dimes, and 2 pennies.  At first the combination struck me as kind of odd but after some thought it makes sense, especially if a lot of customers pay with $10s and $20s.  $2s take up half the space of $1s in the cash drawer and the customer's wallet, and a single 50-cent piece is easier to work with than a pair of quarters.  I've gotten $2s from this particular Subway in the past, too.
Has anyone else ever gotten an uncommon change combination from a Subway, or even another restaurant for that matter?  I wonder if this was a decision made by the local franchise or if it's encouraged by headquarters.
I ate the sandwich while watching Lidia Bastianich make a muffuletta on TV so that made it seem a bit tastier.

    There is a adult dancing place about 20 minutes north of me that gives two dollar bills as change when you pay the cover charge, I have heard that is what they do

        Brad, I gave this a quick read while on the road and thought you got a deal on a sandwich
        If you were in the Euro Zone you would have received two of these....

            I haven't even seen a two dollar bill in at least ten years. Our large Native American annual festival, Indian Summer, used to give out Sacagawea coins as change unless you specified dollar bills but stopped that a few years back.
            Oh, and thank you mods, that was my intent.
