Oh my God, it's look like you're talking about my sad experience! The other day, after a hard double shift in my job, one of my kids called me and asked to get some milk, before I get home I went a supermarket and didn't have enough money, went back to my gloves compartment to find some change, it was about $5.75 between quarters dimes and nickels, the guy first of all ask me if I can count the changes and I said "Oh yes, no problem! By the time he keep serving people and when it came to my turn, he said "I'm gonna take the change but next time when you have so many changes bring them to a bank, because it take me a long time." And my answer was :se la-a yo banmwen yo, se la-a pou-m sevi ak yo.e-m m'pa kon-n fe lajan se pitit m'kon-n fe. so Idon't feel embarrasse at all map pito kase met nan men yo
