I went to the Spar in my area (Brackenhurst) on Monday 4/3/2013 as I always do.
I had two shopping lists, one for me and one for a friend. Each of us had a R200 note as we had no change.
Upon wanting to pay for the first bit of the shopping I took out the R200 and tried to pay. The teller had no change and showing her irritation shouted to the teller at the smoke counter. Instead of the teller one of the young managers shouted back to her and reluctantly got out change for the R200 note.
I then paid. I then put through my friends shopping and tried to pay with my friends R200 note. The teller now very irritated asked the manager for change again to which he threw his arms up in the air and said they had no change and then completely ignored me standing there at the till. In the end i had to pay with with the change i got from the previous transaction.
1. What happens if i had been two separate customers wanting to pay with a R200 note?
2. Even though myself and my friend could have worked out the change between ourselves why should we
have had to??
On top of that on more than one occasion they have opened their doors 10 minutes late while customers wait outside.
