some people leave paper trails. i leave a nickel, copper, and zinc trail. I'm horribly unorganized when it comes to loose change. i have coins everywhere. in my bag, in each pocket, in my wallet, in the door of my car, in the glove compartment, in the ashtray, wedged between the seats, on the floor, on every shelf in my room...

when i go to a store and i get change, i never feel like taking the time to actually put the coins in a change wallet which i have specifically for that purpose. so i dump the coins in my bag where they float around loose like that commercial for bank of America. if you took a massive magnet and waved it around in my room, or over my car, coins of every year and denomination would come flying out at you like some horribly backwards and twisted version of a snowstorm.

how do you know commercials if you don't have a t.v.?

I'm not quite as bad as that, but I tend to lose change as well, just don't want to get out my change wallet. Though at times I do get around to actually cleaning out my bag and going "Oh, THAT'S why my bag was so heavy!"
Anon: the commercial is also on the radio...

FrumCollegeGril: If you have so many coins floating around, would you by any chance have any state quarters? I'm missing a few.

I put my change in my wallet right away.

Thats the exact reason why I think Israel shouldnt have a 10 shekel coin. Its easy to lose and it worth 3$.

MIKE:

it makes more sense, economnically speaking, to mint coins rather than print paper money

My little brother collects change. He keeps them in big C's that Commerce bank gives out. He just cashed one in, he made 15 bucks! Not one red cent was earned!

Moral of the story, keep your change.

The Tide Rises, the tide Falls

The tide rises, the tide falls,

The twilight darkens, the curlew calls;

Along the sea-sands damp and brown

The traveller hastens toward the town,

And the tide rises, the tide falls.

 

Darkness settles on roofs and walls,

But the sea, the sea in the darkness calls;

the little waves, with their soft, white hands,

Efface the footprints in the sands,

And the tide rises, the tide falls.

 

The morning breaks; the steeds in their stalls

Stamp and neigh, as the hostler calls;

The day returns, but nevermore

Returns the traveller to the shore,

And the tide rises, the tide falls.
