If you see a penny on the ground do you pick it up? I was at the grocery store today and spent north of $50, as I exited, I saw a penny laying on the pavement in the parking lot. Shit, I stopped and picked it up and put it in my pocket. Chances are, somebody dropped it and didn't care, or maybe they didn't notice. In this day and age, with our government spending trillions of dollars without blinking an eye about it, I still pick up pennies. If you see a penny on the ground do you pick it up?
