You know how there is a little change bucket for charity on the counter at 7-11? Well, my friend's husband owns three 7-11s in the area and she had a month's worth of change she needed to cash out. She tried taking the money to the grocery store, but the machine charges 10% to count the change.
As sweet as I am, I volunteered to give up my lunch break and take the money to Capital One where there's no charge. Hey, it's for charity, right?
It takes a LONG time to count $600+ in pennies and whatnot. Also, change (and money, in general) is so gross and dirty and it smelled SO BAD. I'm talking completely sour and raunchy - like a dead mouse smell.
So afterwards, I went back to the office and returned the money to her in large bills. I told her how horrible the money smelled. She goes "Oh, yeah, I had my lunch in the same bag last week and yogurt spilled all over the money. Sorry!"
I had to remind myself: Hey, it's for charity, right? .... yuck!
