That was great. Reminds of the news story a few years back where the guy cashed in 1.3 million pennies : http://money.cnn.com/2005/06/23/news/funny/pennies/

That was how I bought my SCMS with a gift card and about $400 in pennies but I exchanged them at the bank first.

Use the right tool for the job.

I cracked up when he eyed the spine of the book like a piece of lumber.

cracked us up too. I said "look he's looking down the binding like he's picking out a pool cue!" and my wife said "...more like he's buying a 2 x 4!"

Did you notice the sellers expressions? Man they were subtle but hilarious. Specially when he nervously pushes his glasses up his nose and grimaces like "What the hell have I got myself into?"

That’s funny!
Just yesterday my 25 year old daughter asked me for a large bottle to put her change in. I reminded her, that her mother and I did that when she was little, and we had a real hard time getting rid of all that change. You used to be able go to Vegas to get rid of them, but not anymore.

Sleeper, most banks will take your change these days, though they often require you to leave it with them and then they just deposit in your account later when they have time to run it through the counting machines.

We keep one of those giant soda bottles at the house... if we ever fill it, we'll have well over 2K in there. We counted it once when it was about an 1/8th full and it was nearly $400.

Thanks, Iíll keep that in mind. Someone told me years ago that they didnít take them anymore, maybe I misunderstood. After showing my wife this thread, she said she has a large collection going in the laundry room from all the change I leave in my pockets.

Change machines are winding up in a lot of places... My local WalMart has one now. But I think you only get WM credit for using it...

I'm not sure this is what people thought of when Obama promised "change"...

I cut that board three times and it's STILL too short!!!...
