Fast Food chains

Have you ever noticed fast food chains like burger king and kfc, all ahve prices that end in a 9. eg £1.99. But when you get to the till they never have enough pennies. This may seem trivial. But supposing they get 200 customers a week without a penny, Thats the tills up £2 a week and then £104 a year, nice bit towards the xmas night out maybe?

what do you all think?

If somewhere hasn't had a penny to give to me I've been given 2 pence before.

Ask them for two pence and tell them you will give them a penny...then when they do say "oh I'm sorry I don't have one." Then go home and put that extra penny in your Christmas fund box.
Result!

never happened to me...

You'd have to eat a hell of a lot of KFC to see a dent in your pocket from the missing pennies!

missing pennies dont bother me really and tbh i just throw them awat but its the thing that they are getting laodz of customers, and not giving them the penny

I dont understand why takeaways do it, and then turn up at your door and struggle to work out the change. Would be easier if they rounded up to the nearest 5 or 10 for everything
