an old misery

i don’t often get angry about things or people, but this woman does cause me much mirth / annoyment (depending on my mood).
i have a standard response to her rudeness which generally works well in most situations of potential confrontation. i say “thank you, have a really lovely evening”. today she went too far and i didn’t say anything.
i approached, paid her my 40 pence, went to extract my paper from her claw-like grip and she looked me in the eyes and said “never do that again”.
“pardon ?” i said
“NEVER give me copper coins. i don’t want them. never do that again”
my mistake had been to include two 2 pence coins and one 1 pence coin in my money.
so, i shall save up all my 1 pence pieces and make a special purchase of my 40 pence paper next week. i may even be ready with my camera:

and here she is close up:

she is the complete opposite of this man
