Default Making change - large notes - USA vs UK (vs The Rest Of The World!)

Why is it apparently such a pain to be presented with large notes in the USA? It's not particularly polite to use a large note for a small purchase, but tales in CS seem to show it as being a big problem - certainly more than it seems to be here in the UK.
AFAIK there seems to be the same notes in circulation - 1,5,10,20,50 - we don't have 100s in the UK but 20s and 50s appear to be problematic in the USA.
Is the relative quantities of the different denominations different?
Is there a problem (counterfeiting?) with larger denominations? I've seen the odd tale where people aren't happy about large note, even with large purchases (i.e. 2x$50 presented for a $97.52 bill)
Are till floats kept at a lower level?

(I did do a search for "change" in the subjects - if this has been discussed before please feel free to point me at the thread...)
