I went to the grocery store today and had to make some copies. I was there several minutes since the first copy I made was useless. I'd put the paper in the wrong spot and had to make another copy to figure out how that particular copier worked. As I was finishing up my copies, I glanced at the coin change machine next to the copy machine. Now, I had been there, like I said, for several minutes and no one else was around.

The tray at the bottom of the coin machine was full of change! I looked around, making sure I was at a grocery store and not a casino! Nope, it was a grocery store. Since I live by the finders keepers, losers weepers motto, I scooped up the change and finished my shopping. Talk about jackpot!

I finished my shopping, checked out, and headed home. The grand total:  $8.42! This is certainly more found money than I'd found all year. Till now, I'd only found $1.22 so this little motherlode brings the grand total to $9.64. Woo hoo!

And no, I'm not going to break down the denominations of the coins like I usually do. I'm a glutton for punishment but I'm not stupid.
