The Jar of Change. (Part 1)
Nothing pisses me off more than getting 98 cents worth of change when you buy something… it makes you want to carry around some pennies just-in-case. (some people do!) Well anyway, instead of throwing my change in a pile, I found this jar to throw it all in, then proceeded to look all-over my bedroom for any loose quarters, dimes, and nickels…. and pennies… to try to fill this thing to the brim.
It’s not QUITE full, but I decided to take it to the bank anyway. Screw Coinstar, they charge like 4% or something… and those damn machines are always broken. Instead, the bank will take it for free. :) :) :) However, not my bank, because it was CLOSED. :( :( :( What bank closes at 4PM on a Tuesday!? This bank does… it’s only open ‘til 5PM on like Friday or something. What a jip!
That got me thinking… buckling the jar back into the front-seat so that it wouldn’t tip over and fall on the floor… how much is this jar actually worth?? A quick look at the top… it’s practically lined with quarters. $20… $40… even $60??? Hmmm, perhaps I will be able to buy those new brakes I wanted.
To be continued…
