LuLuGal over at How I Save Money posted recently about how she missed out on a penny. I thought it was a funny post, but the most interesting part to me was the description of the other people involved.
There was the lady who actually brushed the penny away from her, and the other lady who didn’t even notice the penny. It reminded me of someone that I used to know who would literally throw pennies away at the end of each day, because they “weren’t worth carrying around”. That used to drive me crazy, and I would fish them out of the trash.
Pennies add up. I pick them up, but I wonder if the people who don’t pick them up do so out of a fear of being seen as cheap. Would the lady in the doctor’s office who brushed away the penny have picked it up if she were alone?
