    Angry Disneyland owes me a quarter!!!

    So I got home late from Disneyland last night. The only thing I bought was dinner from Pizza Port.

    So I get home, empty the loose change out of my pockets, and what do I see? A coin roughly the same size and color as a quarter, but with Asian writing on it!!!

    I don't know exactly what country it is from. On one side is a flower with the words "zhongguo renmin yinhang" and on the other side is a big 1 with "yi yuan" written next to it.

    Come on Disney! Look at this stuff when you give out change! It might not seem like a big deal -- it's just one quarter but when you look at all the transactions the park does in the day and the frequency of this happening it adds up. It actually is worse for Disney than the individual customer because of this. I know that the cast members do good jobs but this is something all retail establishments need to look out for.

    So what do I need to do to get Disney to give me my quarter back???

    Sounds like a Chinese Yuan. So you are only short a little more than $0.11.

    Re: Disneyland owes me a quarter!!!

    A lot of times things like this come in rolls of quarters from the bank. I worked at a movie theater and we would get items all the time in rolls that were not actually coins. Sometimes they were just a blank, round piece of metal the size of a quarter. When working in customer service, especially Disneyland, who has the time to sift through all the coins in a till? Maybe you should think of how hard people work in retail establishments and give them a break. Did you notice the non-quarter when it was given to you? If it slipped by you too, I don't think we have an argument here.

    chalk it up as a learning experience and next time you receive change from Disneyland or any other establishment pay closer attention at the time of the transaction, and not hours after. You had as much responsibility to confirm that you received proper change in the proper currency as did the Disneyland employee who gave you the change.

    And if I gave you a dime so you could call someone who cares, you'd be up a penny. Not bad!!!

    Next time I'll see you, I'll give you 50 cents - and you'll be ahead a quarter! I dunno, I think if it were a coin, I'd be okay with it - cause I like all sorts of coins, if it were a bill...depending on the amount it was supposed to be - I maybe a bit bent.

    If that happened to me, I would voice my outrage by posting about the event on some internet bulletin board!

    Oh. Sorry.

    If you were shortchanged like a fiver or something I could understand, but a quarter?

    Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. mycroft16 on Twitter

    With the US dollar exchange rate going like it is, hold onto it for a while and you'll probably make a profit.

    Informal poll here!

    I'm wondering just how many cash transactions Micechat posters have done at Disneyland. Take your time, count them up.

    Now, how many times have you received incorrect change, either in U.S. currency or in foreign currency?

    I'm willing to bet that the chances of this happening is VERY low.
