otherwise it'll bugger the hoover up.
you'd pick up a 50p
no i wouldn't
Haven't found anything for about a year. Mind you that was a £20 note, so I suppose its covered more than a years worth of coin finds.
It's good lluck, isn't it?
Anything silver clearly
Would like to pick 5p pieces because like you say they are silver, but they're so small and fiddly that there's always that risk that you'll end up spending more than an instant trying to get it off the floor and then a small child will point and ask "Mummy why is that strange man trying to pick 5p off the floor?" and the mum will respond "That's a poor person darling", and it's like someone just held a mirror up to you and you realise how your life has turned out.
But i'll be the one laughing when I've saved enough 5p coins to buy a magnum.
...do you reckon you can collect 5p pieces quickly enough to keep track with inflation, or is the ever increasing price of magnums going to keep it forever oh so just out of reach?
if you're out somewhere and drop a handful of change on the foor do you only pick up the coins that are 20p or more and leave the rest on the floor?
it feels like littering otherwise
you're at home.. some loose change falls on the floor.. you just leave it there and kick it about the house?
I smell bullshit.
20's, 50's whatever. embarrassing shiiiit
and call people "cool cats"?
(no finger nails)
then put them in the bin
and laugh when people couldnt rip them off the floor? Great days.
like back and front, scrunch them up and leave them outside my house and laugh at the idiots who would pick them up and think they're real. Once, my PE teacher picked one up.
It was the worst fake I've ever seen, but he successfully used it to buy a HedPE hoodie from one of those dodgy guys after a gig.
all adds up doesnt it
eg if i'm walking down a shopping aisle and i spot 5p whilst i'm browsing i might as well pick it up. if its in a club/venue and the floor looks sticky it'd have to be 50p.
I'm not fussy. It might be a manky nightclub floor by the the bar (you often do well here for loose change)or on the street in the rain.
Find a penny, pick it up etc etc
Money is money.
On a side note. Who else finds those trendy indie coffee shops, who glue pounds to the floor. Such a waste.
The wannabe trendoid copycats.
infact they sound like the places that guys would wear sandals in too, but either way sounds a little dangerous?
to pay for it to the table.
I won't obviously but someone should.
A guy I was acquainted with used to put all change under 50p- IN THE FUCKING BIN.
what coins do you carry round in your purse/wallet?
i have a daily cull of the crap - anything less than 20p goes in the change tin
just me then?
If I've got loads of 5s or 10s and know I'll have chance to get rid of them, I'll take them.
If I'm unfortunate enough to have to catch the bus, I make sure to use as many coins as possible for the fare.
Was getting holes in my pockets from carrying round so much copper.
That you can pour your coins in to.
Like those coinstar things, only you don't lose any of your money and it goes straight into your bank. I put £13 of 1p, 2p and 5ps in the other week.
but always figured it was worth not pissing off everyone in the bank.
HOWEVER, that post about the big Natwests having them might change my life for the better!!
in a small container, I only ever amass about £5. I know it's their job, but I'd be embarrassed to make someone sort through that pittance in a bank.
It's kinda like pissing on the floor while someone's cleaning it, just a little spray.
You dont just march up to the counter, lob a boxful of change and order them to count it double quick?!
I'll happily count pennies to help out a shopkeeper / bartender. Some of them are really appreciative of getting some change for their till.
I don't have a change tin because I'm not a teenager or an old age pensioner.
but yeah, round coins except pound coins get put in the piggy back. too much hassle to carry around. cashed in £34 of shrapnel just the other day, as it happens.
...someone glued a £1 coin to the floor in the Trinity Centre.
I like to leave the rest for tramps, kids and the elderly.
I'm so kind.
I put coppers on my side when they end up in my pocket then usually end up throwing them in the bin when i tidy up. Hate them, only get them whe i get like 76p change anything under 10p i say keep it.
but they are too small and slippery, you look a twat if you miss. 10p therefore, 20p and up definitely.
