I always picked up the pennies i would see on the ground, until one day I saw a small washer next to a penny.

As I reached down to pick up the penny, I realized that a washer cost more that a penny, and picked it up as well.

emmett,



A friend of mine told me that when he ran the vacuum, he wouldn't bother to pick up pennies on the floor (why they were there, I don't know). Said that he figured that, at his hourly rate, his time to pick it up was worth more than the penny. He wouldn't do well in this contest.



Boomergirl - let you conscience be your guide Smile I'll piok up money on the floor on the customer side of the counter of the grocery store, but not any they could be construed as being dropped by the cashier (that's store money).



Here are a few tips (places to look):



1) Chuck-E-Cheese, but only real money counts

2) Along the residential road curbside, especially near drains

3) Near the vacuums, at the car wash

4) Under the monkey bars at the playground





Lots more places, too.

I remember finding a nickel once while on a search. I figured it was lucky, so on a later excursion I dropped it into an old timey slot machine. Found out that it wasn't as lucky as I thought. I also realized some time later that I couldn't afford a photo op, all I could afford was this photo crop! Big Grin

I always figured that ditty - Shave and a haircut; two bits - was timeless. I wonder how many people "knock out" that rhythm without knowing from whence it came. Tap, tappy, tap, tap....tap, tap.

Ok Astree,

I'm in.



I found a dollar two years ago. "F" serial number. FF denies any memory of ownership. Did I touch George Washington?

@HIPS - haven't heard that for a long time (brought memories of my Dad). I did look it up and was especially interested that it was used by American captives in the Vietnam War to authenticate a new prisoner's American identity by tapping the first five notes against a cell wall, waiting for the correct response. Thanks!

Woohoo! Jackpot! Except I couldn't pick them up because they were countersunk in the tiles and fastened by some means. I'm actually not sure if they're real or if they'd add up to two bits anyway..."Real" - see what I did there?
