Uexpected item in bagging area!

Another reason no one likes self-scanning - Unexpected change

No one likes self-scanning at the Supermarket. It's doubtful it's even quicker. Here's just one more reason to add to the lengthy list of annoyances (Unexpected item in bagging area, etc, etc). I thought I'd won the jackpot when I inserted a pound coin to pay for 42p of shopping. the coins came tumbling out, kerching, kerching, like a fruit machine payout.

Can anyone beat the number of coins a Sainsbuy's automated checkout gave me as 58p change for a £1?

4 is the minimum number of coins (50p, 5p, 2p, 1p) to make change for this 42p purchase.

Sainsburys gave me 17 coins (9 x 5p, 6 x 2p, 2 x 1p). Is this a record?
