No worries. Between the 10, 20, 50 and one euro pieces I got more than 30 euros I could spend.
That said, no cafe, tabac, restaurant or grocery store woluld take the 1 or 5 cent pieces.
They are now stuck in a jelly jar. There is probably about 15 bucks worth of change in these pieces
What I wonder is if I get told to fuck off with them because I'm obviously middle class.
So, what I'm going to do is stick the jar full of coins on the street with a sign reading "free!" and see if people bother with them or if even street people are like "fuck that - we can't spend it!"
