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.
MORAL OF THE STORY?
A penny saved is one more penny you can put into an old coin roll.
