There’s a lot of truth to it. People are used to being fooled by “9.99” prices, even though most people will say “keep the change” or put it into a donation box. Since we got the Euro, I’d reckon lines at checkout stands have doubled. I still have to look at each coin to figure out its worth – I thought this would have come more natural in the meantime.
So, I’ll sign that petition – let’s get rid of the small change. They’re only trying to fool us with such prices anyway.
