To explain:

Quick change scams are being pulled by individuals and teams of con artists every day. The victims are usually retail businesses with confused or disorganized cashiers. The quick change scam typically involves a con artist who confuses a cashier by paying with a large denomination bill, and then changing his mind several times about how he wants the change returned to him.

Next time, tell the person you usually don't accept $100 bills. Then offer to break the $100 with five $20. Then they can pay with a $20, so you don't get so confused.

Next time, do not ever switch anything until you have gotten his change out completely. Then make him give you back one of the smaller bills where you can make the change with that. Even if it requires opening your drawer again, it will be worth it!
