Have you ever paid in coins? Strictly coins?
My sister and I used to carry our change around in Ziploc bags and we'd call it our beer money. We actually would buy donuts with the change. The bakers didn't mind.
Yesterday, Matt went to the McDonald's drive-thru, and his total was $2.56, and he paid it all in change. As in COINS! Matt pulled up to the window and while the worker had his back turned to take another order, Matt put five handfuls of mostly pennies on the little window/ledge/counter top. He said he had to turn his head multiple times because he didn't want the guy to notice him laughing. Then just before he pulled up to the next window to get his food he saw a long hair, probably mine, in the pile of change. He thought that made it extra funny for some reason.
On my last payday, after my pimp (aka Matt) came home, I turned the money over to him. We went to the bank drive-thru to deposit the money so we could buy food and cover the bills and stuff like that. While waiting in a long line he organized all the cash (first time I've been paid in cash, therefore, the most cash Matt has held in his giant paws in a long, long time). First he sorted by denomination. 10's, 20's, 50's. Next he made sure all the heads were pointing in the same direction. Then, believe it or not, he put the separate groups in sequential order by serial number........... I know, he's a FREAK! I didn't think it could get any stranger than that. But when it was our turn Matt pulled forward, put the cash, checks and deposit slip in the canister and sent it away. Then he proceeded to talk to the poor bank teller in a strange voice that whistled it's S's....
