The Rolled Coin Guy

We all have a rolled coin story in us.

Here is mine:

The other day this guy comes into my shop and asks if he can pay with coins.

I say: "Sure, no problemo!" (I didn't actually say that)

So he brings his stuff up to the counter, pulls out three or four rolls of coins and pays for said stuff.

He then looks at me.

I look at him.

And then he says:

"Can I have the paper rolls back?"

And then I say:

"You mean these hard to find paper coin rolls that one puts coins into for easy counting and storage?" (I didn't use those excat words)

And he says: "Yuppers!" (he didn't actually say Yuppers...I think it was more like a regular old Yes.)

So I emptied the coins into my cash register and gave him back his coin rolls.

A penny saved is one more penny you can put into an old coin roll.

Or something.

Those "hard to find" paper coin wrappers come from (1) Staples, and (2) dollar stores. (I think they're called 99¢ stores in the U.S.) You realise that because the Canadian dollar is worth less than the American, Canadians can buy the same shoddy crap at our dollar stores for cheaper than Americans pay!
