Why is it that every time I bend down to pick up a penny I get crap from my roommates? They say I look tacky picking up stuff off of the ground or whatever. For me pennies add up-they are still considered to be currency, i.e. pennies=money and money=good.
I'm not destitute, I live a very comfortable suburban life, however, I am still going to pick up every frellin' penny I see. Needless to say, the people who give me crap about this do not even have a dollar to their name much less a friggin' penny. Leave me be penny haters!
Here's an example of a successful penny picker-upper, the dude has $13,084.59 in pennies: Penny Jackpot Dude
oh ya, According to Coinstar, there's more than $10.5 billion in loose change sitting idle in American homes.
