no, not yet anyway- though DS and I have found pennies by a cahregister and returned those the the cashier (DS didn't really want to *G*)

What is for dinner tonight?

No idea yet, its only 11:30 *G*

Do you have a change jar?

Yes, all of the change DH and I get goes in this huge mason jar. The only time I take anything out of this jar is to give DS his allowance ($1-spend, $.20-church, $.40-bank, $.40 saving for something don't know what yet)

Do you save dollars (outside our challenges)

Any singles also go in the mason jar

Do you have a change jar? Yes

Do you save dollars (outside our challenges) - occasionally

ANY financial questions? Nope...a vent of I'm tired of people thinking I'm a mind reader. LOL! I got yelled at today because I had been contacting a wrong person but I had no clue I was supposed to be contacting someone else because no one told me. Grrr!!

I'm NOT a mind reader. OK, vent over.

Has a cashier, ever given you too much change?

It's happened many times! If I notice and the cashier has been nice, I give it back since I would feel badly if they had to pay for it. If I don't notice, it's my gain. If they're particularly rude to me, I might keep it! Isn't that terrible?!

What is for dinner tonight?

Absolutely no idea! Probably something left over in my fridge. Or, I might go out with friends.

Do you have a change jar?

Nope--don't use cash much. If I do, extra change goes in the car for parking.

Do you save dollars (outside our challenges)

See above answer.

ANY financial questions?

Not today!

Pretend my hat is on...I'm too tired to go put it on (Was woken up from a nap and am still "groggy").

I hear you with the terminal honest. We bought some steaks a few weeks ago and DH thought we were charged twice for one of them...so as we were searching the receipt, we found out, nope, it didn't beep twice as a double charge...it didn't scan at ALL. So, I went up to the service desk to pay for it. They just looked at me like I had 2 heads. LOL!! Of course, if we had gotten home and then I noticed, not so sure I would have turned around and driven all the way back but...

Although, with change if I don't notice until I get home I'm not going back because I have also been shortchanged and not noticed until I've gotten home and don't go back for that either. Figure it's all a wash in the end. Usually then it's a minor amount...I think I would notice if they were handing me a $10 instead of a $1 or something. LOL!!
