You bet I would pick it up and put it in my pocket. That is the easiest coin earned. lol. Now if a car was coming I would wait until the car was gone before going into the street to get it. It wouldnt be worth getting hit over.

Your daughter may just grab you and pull you in the street with her.

I dont think I would pick it up. If it was a dollor of course. I could definately use that. I would leave the coins for you and scooter to pick up.

Yes I shall pick it up and put it my pocket. If I donot somebody else will do the same thing. What will I do with it? Either donate it to or spend it.The value of coin is generally small and hence it is unsignificant as for as the other person who has lost it is concerned unless until it is a gold coin of significant value

So true. If someone finds a coin dropped here in my house, they get to keep it. Saves me from bending down to retrieve it.

Sometimes I do. My mother always picks up any loose change she sees laying on the street. She has even gone as far as to pull her car over and reach under a car to get a coin. She says pennies add up to dollars. smile God Bless

yes, mostly if it is a nickel and higher. A penny I usually won't pick up.

Only five pennies to get a nickle though.

Yes but a nickel is 1 coin, versus 5 single pennies. If there were 5 pennies on the street together I may pick them but I doubt it.
