How Low Can You Go?

I found a shiny quarter on the pavement and I picked it up, despite the fact I was carrying two bags of groceries and had to place them on the ground in order to acquire the quarter. I try not to pick up anything less than a $1 bill but I guess that's my actual low threshold [].

So here's the question - how low are you willing to stoop?

(sorry for non-States residents, but if you can imagine coins in your currency and start from the lowest and work your way up, you get the idea).

RE: How Low Can You Go?

A couple of years ago, I was really pissed off to see about $3.50 in change in a urinal at my club/local.
The urinals are those wall hanging porcelain things.
I made a point of washing the coins thoroughly, and putting them into a charity jar on the club bar, with vocal broadcast loud abuse against the arsehole who created the sick set up.

^^^^^^
That's all very well,but licking your fingers afterwards was going a bit too far.


Me,I leave brown money change if I get it in a store-if there is a charity box I request or put it in there-but if I see any coins on the street I pick them up.

RE: How Low Can You Go?

Being partly raised by an ultra superstitious Irish grandma, I was taught that failure to pick up any denomination could lead to the early death of my cows or worse, that Dublins breweries would run dry.
Of course you must give the new found wealth to someone nearby to deter this ghastly prophecy.

I collected enough pennies to make a down payment on my chrome wheel centers.
