pennies

Here in New York, a lot of places don’t care if you’re short a few pennies when you buy something.  Lots of delis and stores have little penny dishes near the register, so if you’re short a few cents you can take some pennies from the dish.  And if you don’t have three cents, no problem.  But friends who visit say it’s not like this in the rest of the country.  Is this the case where you are?

We’re moving toward a penniless world and eventually the prevalence of so many prices ending in “.99” will be a thing of the past.  But pennies are still money.  So why is it now socially acceptable to disregard actual money?  And where does it end?  Are nickels next?
