Watched Someone Drop a Penny and I Got It

Today I ran some errands including going to the gas station. I don't drive much so only fill up every 3 or 4 weeks usually. The pump wasn't working right; I couldn't change the choice of gas from diesel to regular unleaded. So I had to go inside to have the cashier void my credit card at the pump.

She knew she dropped it but left without picking it up. Then the guy paid for his lottery tickets. He didn't pick it up either! 

SCORE! This is the first time I've seen someone drop money and just ignore it. Amazing! That explains a lot about why there's so much change floating around, I guess.

Have you dropped any money or found any money lately?
