Are you sure you've got a floppy disk stuck in the drive? Or is it 100 lodged in the chassis?

I once used one of those, and it gave me three 10 notes instead of three 1 notes. It was fun to watch the resulting panic, when I mentioned this to the "minder" on duty. Turns out the bins in which the notes are stored inside the machine are all identical and marked as to value with handwritten masking tape labels.

I left them wondering how many earlier users had "not noticed" they had received incorrect change.
