Cashing In

Remember this post featuring a large coffee can full of silver change?


Well, I followed some of your advice and took it to a Coinstar machine. I figured Coinstar's 9% fee was a small price to pay for not having to count it all. I honestly thought it would amount to about $150. I was wrong:


It turned out to be worth about $465. All the cash isn't pictured because I indulged in a rash orgy of consumerism by purchasing a gallon of milk and razor refills.

October has proved to be a rather lucrative month. Particularly, when the extra income from my part-time job as an exotic dancer at local retirement homes is also factored into the equation:

kira-They try, but the Fixodent always screws it up.

kalleigh-Years of practice.

verity-I'm thinking maybe two truly kickass meals.

j$-What song is that to? And, yes that is duck sauce.

ACW-It's OK. They don't really make it out of ducks.

cham-I assumed that it would take 6 hours to handroll the coins and take them to the bank. Even if I valued my time as low as $10/hr, I came out ahead.

I had no idea you had that kind of cash. On a totally unrelated note, have I ever told you how hot I think you are? Call me.

Where is the little blue pill?

 
At 11:13 PM, Blogger tfg said...

susie-No, I have a prescription for that penicillin. A prescription with many refills, to be precise.

dyck-The hundreds are legit, but the coupons turned out to be counterfeit. Damned old bats and their inkjets.

j$-Damn, rocking the old school.

karla-Quit trying to rook me out of my Milkbones.

luck-They don't give the good stuff.

You know, with a little know how, those matches and paperclips could become a very deadly weapon...or perhaps a really good accessory!

Old ladies with removable dentures make the best groupies, for the obvious reason: senior citizen discounts.

Damn, now you have me eyeing that water jug half full of change that I have upstairs....might be more in there than I thought. I linked your blog, if that's cool.

you expect us to believe you value all of your time at $10 an hour? So that's roughly $100 a week you spend masturbating.
