Coins, Then Cash

Attention all cashiers. If you work a register, heads up. This message is for you. Your willingness to make one simple alteration in the way you return change to your customers will make for quicker lines and happier customers. Are you ready? Please stop giving us bills first, and coins second. It's awkward, and irritating. All we want to do is put our bills in our wallet and change in our pocket, but your insistence of bills before coins requires us to take extra steps. Half the time the coins slide off the bills and onto the counter or floor anyway. I can't imagine what the rationale is for this, and I don't even care anymore. My not-so-subtle sighs and raised eyebrows have gone unnoticed, so I am coming right out and asking... please,

COINS, THEN CASH!

Thank you.
