A Quarter or More?

I was reading this post (which is brilliant and hilarious) at the same time.

The author says: “as you grow older, do you notice how the value of the dropped coin you’re willing to chase after keeps getting bigger and bigger? At one point you stopped crawling after pennies because, after all, it was just a penny. Soon after, nickels weren’t worth bending over for. In no time at all, dimes are more trouble than they’re worth. With age comes the realization that the time, effort, and energy required to retrieve dropped money requires careful calculation.

So the older you get the less likely your are going to make the effort.

I thought to myself,  hmmm, what coin would make me bend down and pick up ?

I think a quarter would be my coin, I have dropped many pennies and nickles and dimes that I never retrieved but a quarter I always retrieve.

Does that mean I am still kinda young (at heart) ?

What’s the smallest coin you are willing to pick up?

  1. If I dropped it, any coin size … it just seems wrong to throw away money, regardless of its worth.

    If someone else dropped it, nothing less than a dollar.

  2. I guess it would be a 25 piasters coin in Jordan, and a 50 pennies coin in the UK.
    i think the pentagon shape of the coin makes it worth more.

  3. there’s a very dirty and very racist anti-nabulsi joke about why nobody should never pick up a quarter, I won’t say the joke though!

  4. neutron: Yeah never thought about that. A dollar would be also the lowest if it was dropped by someone else.

    Yazan: OMG in Jordan I would pick up anything higher than 1 piaster since I can at least buy gum with it, where as in Canada, you can get NOTHING for less than a quarter.

    Hareega: Deer balak ana Nabulsieh. heheehe

  6. KJ: ewww you eat food of the floor? ewwwwwww
