Small change at the cafeteria

Just before class, I went to the cafeteria for a cup of coffee. They'd just closed, but the woman cleaning up sold me a coffee capsule. When I asked where the coffee machine was, she said the closest one was three blocks away. I'd already paid for the capsule, so I asked for my money back. She gave me nothing but small change, including stacks of coins worth one and two rappen (which don't exist). When I told her I didn't want all those coins, I realized they'd gotten mixed up with the others, so I had to sort out the small ones. I was still sorting when I woke up.
