Are you suggesting he alienates his customers and risks losing business in this economy to force those who dont want to take coins as change?

You must have never run a small business that is heavily centered with customer satisfaction. Hint: there is no exclusivity for car wash business.

What a brilliant idea of yours!

Oh and YES, customers can refuse to take your $2 bills as change and simply say, "If you dont have the denomination I want, can you VOID the transaction?"

What would you do? Tell the customer to take a hike?
