Creative currency - the gum replaces the nickel

Today, I bought two waters at the mini market in Oloncito and received back creative change.  I gave her $1.00 for the $.70 purchase.  The cashier was out of nickels so she gave me one stick of gum and one quarter (pennies are not used very often so she also did not have those).  I am pretty sure that this only works one way - I can't pay for my groceries using gum.

My $.30 in change
