The Dangers of Change

The world’s gone mad. Since when has giving change been a security issue? I could understand that giving change might be a pain in the arse for people working in shops. But to escalate it to this seems bonkers.

I love the fact that ‘Security Reasons’ has been capitalised too. Makes it all the more believable. It’s especially painful when you need 30p for the loos opposite (3x10p or 20p and a 10p – quite obscure change combos in my pockets).

But I guess if we keep loose coins out of the hands of terrorists we’ll all be much safer. Unless the terrorists are customers of Costa, in which case it’s OK for them to have change…?
