(i.e. would pick up a £1 coin but not a 50p coin)
What's wrong with you, actually? All silver is fair game, even if picking up a five pence is a bit dodgy. This is none negotiable, not even with all that 'find a penny' guff, we're on to you. A RHYME DOESN'T LEGITIMISE BEING A SCROUNGING BUGGER.
I haven't made my mind up on the issue - i think it depends who was looking. i'd probably pick up a 50p.
And I'm not sure if I want to know anyone who wouldn't want two packets of space raiders for free. I definitely don't trust them.
50p - definite yes
20p - probable yes
10p - probably no
5p - definite no
But I'd probably pick up 20p and maybe 10p (the latter only if it was clean and no one was there). Definitely 50p and above though.
I'm very likely to pick up $1 or $2 coins, but there may be some circumstances in which I wouldn't.
Would possibly pick up 50c in public, and probably would if no one were around.
Wouldn't bother with 20c or less in most circumstances, though obviously if I were short 20c for something and there was 20c, I'd grab it.
We're going to need an exchange rate here, I think...
Buy NZD 0.5 GBP SPOT GBPNZD 1.9304
20p would need to be a pretty convenient grab.
If it's brown, don't bend down
Whats that got to do with money?
and then slide your foot forward a bit — in a completely unobvious way, of course — to see if it'll move.
Tried it with chocolate bars outside our halls aswell. Halcyon days
that you know someone got more greed than pride.
I wouldn't really think about where it came from if it was only a pound or so, but much more and I would beel bad for the person who dropped it. I'd probably pocket a fiver that was on the ground without feeling too bad but £10 or anything more would feel like stealing.
but assuming that I didn't know, I'd have no problem picking up a tenner or maybe a twenty - mainly because there'd be little chance of the person being able to reclaim it if it was handed in.
if it was in a wallet - different issue (would hand it in).
is pretty scratty
i'd pick up a half penny just for the nostalgia
Having just looked at wikipedia though they appear to be 15p now. MORE SPACE RAIDERS FOR YOUR 50p!
...shaped like hamburgers and were a strong beefy flavour? They were fucking great.
Transform a snacks are my personal favourite though. BUILDING CARS. WITH CRISPS. The future.
` There has been massive uproar at the price hike in the Space Raiders fan community (a fan club named the 'Raidettes')`
please say that's true. raidettes!
then think FUCK YES and spend it and then realise it was your £20 all the time and now you can't eat for several days?
Kids used to actually make a point of throwing away 1p or 2p.
If there's no one around I'll go as low as 10p.
which means that i sometimes pick it up if the mood takes me....
