I keep a lot of change in my car, but the change holder is pretty small and is usually overflowing, so I try to take some out to use whenever I go into a store (rather than just getting more change inside and adding to the problem of already having too much change in my car). So I grabbed a handful of change and went inside.
I picked out my few items and took them to the cashier upfront, who scanned them and told me the total was $10.81.
I dug the change from my car out of my pocket and looked at it: a quarter, four dimes, two nickels and six pennies. That’s right, exactly $0.81.
A good day.
