Would you pick up a nickle or dime if you saw it on the floor or do you find it too embarassing?

Yes I do, always it just makes me a few cents richer.I even "dumpster dive" when I see something I could use or could be of use to someone else...lol

A "dumpster dive", now that would be something worth seeing.

Absolutely. I'm not above picking up spare change off the ground, or out of the gutter. Every little bit helps.

That's so true, especially those times when you're just a dime short of not having to change another note.

I would pick up a nickel or a dime. However, I do not pick up pennies but not becuse I would be embarassed. I always leave pennies because I know someone's child will feel like a millionaire when they find it. I can walk past a penny and make a young person's day!

That's a good thought but some older person may pick it up, but hey it's the thought that counts.

I do pick up a penny, but the value is so slight that if not for the expense in calories to stoop over, it might hardly be worth it.

It's always good to look for the silver lining, is it not?

I would pick it up because it is considered lucky then I would give it to someone else because then it is supposed to bring them lick & double yours.

Yep, throw into the change jar. One guy I used to work with, this older guy, we'd collect all our change we'd find-in payphones, on the ground etc., then split it at the end of the night lol. We'd mess with him too by throwing pennies all over the ground. I always wanted to try gluing one to the ground lol....
