Word is coming in that at various locations around the country, shoppers have reacted with degrees of panic and alarm at the mention of certain amounts in change they were due for purchases made. One man,on hearing the clerk at a supermarket say, "seven forty seven", passed out causing two others in line to bolt across three aisles to "safety".
Managers have counseled clerks to either say nothing when returning the amounts of, $7.47, or $7.27...or $7.67 etc... or say loudly , "HERE IS YOUR MONEY"...because each is the designation for some sort of passenger airliner.
