The only people that seem to have coin these days are very old people (bless them) that are in front of you in checkout lines.
Any coin I have goes into a jar and gets deposited once a month.
Hello World!! Debit Cards! You get a record of where all your money went as a side benefit.
ah yes and they stand there digging around everywhere to get the exact change
So. . . This guy is telling the vending machine guy to increase the price to $1.00? Huh. First, this would reduce his sales, 95 cents being somewhat more appealing. Second – DUDE! Just leave the nickle in the change box if you don’t want to carry it around. And feel good at doing a good act for the folks that will be thrilled at finding it.
Maybe he’s saying that the machine frequently runs out of 5 cent coins for change and reverts to a “correct money only” state.
Don’t you feel a bit insulted when there is a sign in the window of a new pickup truck that says, “ONLY $29,999.99″ How stupid does this guy think I am that a penny is going to sway me. I’ll pay a dollar before I’ll run around looking for change!
