How much change can a Brazilian clerk give you from a cash register?

None. No one can ever give you change. I have been in shops where the clerk had to run next door to find change for 20reis. Large shopping centers or grocery stores will call to the manager to deliver your change. Some taxi drivers loose fares because they can't make change for a customer. You just shrug your shoulders and exit the taxi.

Wow - how strange. Well, strange to me I suppose, not if you're Brazilian!
