Found a penny in the parking lot this morning and stopped to pick it up. Yes, I will pick it up – regardless if its heads up or not. Money is money…right?
Apparently not. According to a new survey 44% of people say they wouldn’t stop to pick up a penny and 6% say they wouldn’t pick up ANY coin if the see it on the street – NOT EVEN A QUARTER!
I will always stop to pick up money. That being said, I don’t like carrying coins. Can’t stand loose change in my pockets. So it goes straight into the ashtray in my car. So I never have exact change. Those coins just keep piling up in the console.
When I sold my last car, I had close to $25 in change spread around between the ashtray, cup holders and the floor. That change is now in a plastic bag in my kitchen. And I’ve started a new collection in the vehicle I’m driving now.
