When was the last time you saw change on the floor, did u pick it up? People don't seem to pick up coppers these days?


#1

Money, money, money! (post cant be empty)


#2

Get my assistant to do it for me these days.


#3

I can’t remember and I definitely didn’t. Fuck a coin.


#4

I picked up five p the other day

I’d dropped it onto the floor shortly beforehand


#5

I picked up a copper the other day

We had a great night but she had to leave early for her shift

:exploding_head:


#7

Think I’d have left it, unless I was in my own home at the time. And even then I’d hesitate.


#8

I have a coin operated electricity meter. Quite fun.


#9

I didn’t really think about it until I was already stooping down

does dropping money count as littering?


#10

It does if it’s 5p or less, i feel.


#11

€0.01 and €0.02 coins can stay on the ground. €0.05 and up? You betcha I’m picking that sucka up.

Anything lower than a silver and I am not interested (not true), ‘but what if there was 5p worth of coppers Rony?’ I hear you say.


#14

I have another coin story. One of my friends runs a post office, and one of his customers used coins to pay for something this week. One of them was a Snowman 50p piece:

He sold it on ebay two days later for £200!


#15

Shud he have split it with the partially sighted pensioner who paid for her/his electricity bill in coins? Or screw them finders keepers! :grin:


#16

Got to be 50p or higher for me to bother.


#17

Caught between a few searing hot takes in this one so will for plump for the old adage of the world economy crashing if we all picked up all the small change.


#18

I’d like to hear more about this theory


#19

I think it’s essentially that lost/missing money is an essential part of inflation and value estimations in global economics. If it all suddenly became accounted for the money would be meaningless, ironingly/


#20

That sounds like it should be interesting if there was any part of me that understood any aspect of economics
