Well dr65, you are going to win a million pennies or more!  The mean old lady's 20 will pale in comparison.

LOLLOL Keystone!! Oh then for sure, I have to keep it for all the crummy looks and bad vibes she's given me. I told the store manager she's

littering the parking lot with her non-winning tickets...not just one or two, scores of them! I think she knows who told...now she's out for blood. LOL

    I've always saved pennies.  I have a bank I put them in and every so often, I roll them.  It does add up over time.  What I often do with the extra money is either put it on the principal of my mortgage, put it towards bills, or just save it.  I'm not talking big money, like $20 or so, but it can add up over time.

              I do not like change so I would pass it up.  But if it is a dollar now or higher go ahead and pick it up.-weshar75

                No pennies, only nickels, dimes & quarters. I ain't hurting my back to get a penny. I hate pennies. Think the government should get rid of them.

                  Maybe not a penny, but I am not above picking up money.  My thing with pennies is that I've got jars and jars of them saved up.  I always pick up dimes, nickels, etc.  I am a really frugal guy and have always been.  My friends tease me that I am like one of those old-timers who lived through the Great Depression.  I wear clothes until they become rags (and then I use them as rags).  I take the train to work to save gas money, even though I have to wake up at 5:30 AM.  I've been poor; I've had money, but I've always been the same guy.  I don't think being a millionaire will change me into a flashy guy with dozens of sportscars and a mega-mansion.

                  Best,

                    Here is my normal process upon seeing a penny on the ground:

                    1) See the penny

                    2) Pick up the penny - sometimes flip it so that I pick it up heads-side-up

                    3) Look at the penny

                    4) See what year the penny was minted

                    4.5) (Optional) Comment on the year that the penny was minted (e.g. if it is a 1986 penny, I'll say, "That was the year I was born!" If it is a 1943 penny, I'll say, "That year, Easter fell on the latest day that it can fall." If, for some odd reason, it is a 1955 Denver-mint double-dye penny, I'll say, "Oh my goodness!").

                    5) Put the penny in my pocket or change purse

                    6) Use the penny at the supermarket

                    Today's winning 3-ball is going to be a number between 000 and 999.

                    In a lot of states, lotteries benefit education. That makes the REAL winners the only people who can't play!

                      I've learned a lot from the responses to this poll.

                       

                      1) Many of you are purposefully leaving me your pennies. I appreciate it.

                      2) If I find one tail-up I should flip it and leave it for the next person to come by. If it's still there when I get back from the can, only then can I keep it.

                      3) I need to be on the lookout for a "1955 Denver-mint double dye."

                      4) I need to find out what a "1955 Denver-mint double dye" is.

                      "...a chance to push everything aside, the circumstances that've controlled our lives, and do it our way now. Good, bad or otherwise. You'll maybe get lost in it, tied up in it a little bit, but if you work your way through that the real you shows up, I think. Maybe what's at your core deep down, maybe that comes out. Maybe that's what it's about." Mike Pace

                        most of the time if you find a $100 dollars bill on the floor is someone trying to scam/rob you, trick you...however if you are rich you could pick up a: $50 or $100 bill on the floor if is trully lost by someone and donate it to charity....But only $50 or $100 bills...

                        that´s what i would had done if no one is really trying to scam me, if i was rich i´ll take the $100 or $50 dollar bill ONLY and donate it to charity...$100 could make the difference if someone doesnt get a kidney or a particular: Expensive machine...I remember there was a blond american teen that had a terrible terrible disease and was dying, and she needed a: $50 Million, yes that´s $50 Million dollar machine for her disease....The only countries that had those machines were Mexico & Germany...Is a very, very rare disease that health insurance dont bother with it because is not profitable....

                        The Forex trades: 1.6 Trillion dollars EVERY day, that´s more than the GDP of the Carribbean Central America, COMBINED. Enough to feed every crook out there for centuries...To all Geniuses & Powers Countries of the World the Planet needs breakthroughs in all Medicine, Veterinary, Biology related fields, Psychology, Population Psychology/Sociology..They need to genetically ingeneer new plants species/types to give more variety of plants and thus have more resources for combating diseases¨
