Sweet Change

Shops commonly seem to have small sweets or chocolates in their tills. For whatever reason, these tend to replace the smallest RS1 coins which you can find about. It’s a little odd, but I am beginning to get used to being handed a few notes and a few sweets as change for payment for any goods.

The other day a restaurant couldn’t summon RS20 change so came over to the table with a bottle of water instead.

The most bizarre part of this is that there is no checking that you are happy with this arrangement, they just hand it over as if it is money and look to the next person in the queue.
