Do you pick it up?

What I mean by this question is a coin. When you see a coin (even a penny), do you have the tendency to pick it up? I do! I guess it is because of my upbringing. My mother never wanted to see any coins scattered on any place, and she would ask us to pick them up when we see them, even on the streets! Well, I guess with the pennies I am earning here at myLot, I am glad to get them anyway. It's best to not waste anything. How about you? Do you have the impulse to pick up any coin that you see anywhere? Who knows, that could be a lucky coin! Happy myLotting!

Hello friend. Usually I pick it up when I see a coin on the ground because I think that it is good for the coin not to be washed away to the drainage by the rain water if it happens to rain. It is better to make full use of the money to its own value instead of leaving it on the ground.

Absolutely! I pick up every coin I see. It doesn't matter to me where I am, who I'm with or what I'm wearing. If there is a coin on the ground or floor I am going to pick it up. A lot of times when my friends see me picking up a coin they will ask me if it is on heads or tails. They ask this because they believe that heads is lucky and tails is unlucky. They also believe that if you pick up a coin that's on tails you pick up the bad luck with it. Personally, I feel that any coin I find is a lucky coin. It's lucky for me that I found it.

i would do so cos they are money and i have been raised like that too. also we chinese are supertitious and we believe it is unlucky not to pick up money if u see them and you will have bad luck so we would pick it up whenever we see on regardless of the face value. sometimes, i pick up also and would dream that it is a lucky coin and would give me good luck for the whole day. haha

I do! I'm not to good for a penny! Growing up I can remember my grandmother always saying "look down you may find money". Still till this day even when she isn't around me I look down to see if I find any money. I have found coins here and there and found a 5 dollar bill once. I don't ever remember finding more then that darn! LOL

Always! Even those pennies add up if you pick up enough of them. Last night I stopped at a convenience store and found a penny on top of the candy rack, so I picked it up, lol. Sometimes, if you're used to watching, you can find higher value coins or even the occasional bill. My daughter found a $20 bill in the parking lot once and was thrilled!
