Good deed for the day

Well, I have done my good deed for the day which was to stick a post-it on the coffee machine saying 'to get change you have to press the reject button'. The machine is a more or less identical model to the previous one which gave change automatically and judging by the number of free cups I have had in the last week or two, the finest minds of Britain's software and civil engineering businesses have not grasped this.
Ironically (for fairly small values of irony), this is a CafeDirect coffee machine which replaced a Douwe Egberts one. Sadly, I think it unlikely the lost 50ps have been going to the coffee growers of Tanzania - some of them have been going to me but I doubt I have been the only recipient.
