Today I went to Target for a gift for my grandson. I saw a coin from a distance in a checkout lane. There were two customers checking out, so I didn't feel like I could barge up there and say, "Excuse me" and get it. I wanted to, mind you, but I didn't.
So, I left and did my shopping (I got him Uno and bought some cat treats) and came back and sure enough, the coin was still there. There were two different customers in line. I got in line behind them and watched them both walk right past the coin, which by now I could see was a dime.
When it was my turn to check out, I reached down and picked it up. It's amazing to me that four (at least four) people walked right by this money! But I'm not complaining!
