While I was standing in line, there was a woman and a man in line in front of me. The woman (a girl really in her teens or early 20s maybe) dropped a penny when she got her change. 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?
