Cleanliness, Fresh Smells & Money

Since I started working at my new branch almost a year ago, I've noticed that most of the patrons at this branch are clean and relatively pleasant. I've also noticed that most of the patrons are willing, nay eager, to pay their overdue fines IMMEDIATELY RIGHT NOW THIS VERY MINUTE never mind that this computer doesn't have a cash register attached and there is a line 10 deep behind them.

Interestingly enough, with the new upper class clientele, I have also noticed that those who carry the most status symbols (Prada bag, Coach accessories, etc.) will give the most grief over 25 cents that I have ever seen. Lady, that quarter won't even pay for the buckle on your Cole Haan sandals.

Anthropology experiment. I has it.
