Receipts and notes
Oh yes.

When pisses me off is when some idiot cashier puts a bank note into the palm of my hand, and then deposits coins ON TOP.

I will invariably have only one hand free: the other being used to hold the bag with my shopping, AND to hold open my wallet in order to put the change.

Now... how many people store their notes and coins in the same place? Not many. But these fuckwad cashiers don't seem to realise that. They think that I can just dump the contents of my palm into a single compartment.

Nowadays, when someone tries to do this to me, I insist: "Coins first please". Then I will be able to receive the coins in my palm, while using the fingers of the same hand to take the notes afterwards. It's then an easy job to slip the notes into my wallet, and then the coins into the coin compartment.

It only works that way round. If you dump the coins on top of the notes on someone's palm, with no other hands free, then they can't manipulate their fingers correctly.
