Would you bend over to pick up a dime?

28

Would you bend over to pick up a dime? In the past we’ve asked you if you would pick up a penny and then a nickel.

So what about a dime? Would you go to the trouble of bending over to pick it up?

Curious minds truly do want to know.

Late to this party, but what is with the poll requiring an email before you can see the results? I’m not a fan, and I’ll probably stop participating in the polls entirely if this is the new normal.

I had always heard that it was good luck to find a penny (probably from the days when a penny was worth something), so it would be ten times good luck to find a dime.

Found a dime just yesterday. Picked it up and gave it to my friend with the intent of passing her good luck.

When I see a dime on the ground, I drop a 5 dollar bill next to it and then pick them both up. I’m not bending over for no dime!!! LOL!

I got a popup when I voted, asking for my email address to view the results (they were covered by the popup). I closed the tab and re-opened from the newsletter again. The results were there. I don’t know who the popup was from but they wanted me to OK emails from them. It looked like it was RV Travel, but I don’t think so.

Sorry, Ron. Yep. I just tried it and it did the same to me. I’ll let our IT folks know. Thank you for letting us know. We apologize for the inconvenience. —Diane at RVtravel.com

Sorry, Linda. I’ll check with our IT folks. I just tried it again, and it didn’t pop up for me this time. Thanks for letting us know. —Diane at RVtravel.com

Here’s what Jess, one of our brainy IT folks, explained: “The popup sets a cookie in everyone’s browser to show once every two weeks. It won’t set the cookie though if the person is using a private browser. … The only reason people have to put in their address to post comments is to stop spam and attacks and so they can use the comment features like voting and following.” I hope that helps explain it. 😀 —Diane at RVtravel.com

Shoot! Sorry, Darrel. Did you read my reply to Linda, just above your comment? Jess, one of our IT folks, explained what could be happening. I don’t know what else to tell you. (I don’t understand any of the techy stuff.) I’m sorry for the inconvenience. —Diane

A friends wife bent over to pick up a penny,got dizzy and fell into a clothes rack while shopping. Broke her hand near the thumb. Medical bills exceeded $35 k.

At the end of the week, most of my change goes into a pot for charity. So yes, every dime and even penny is saved.

If I see a dime it’s just not worth picking it up with my bad back so I simply drop 3 quarters next to it and pick up 85 cents.

😆 Just so you don’t get dizzy in the process, like Thomas Becher wrote about, and end up with $35,000+ in medical bills! OY! 😯 —Diane at RVtravel.com

I love that idea. Hell I would even drop a penny with the 3 quarters to make it 86 cents

Even for a penny. I have a 1 year old granddaughter and I keep every penny I get or find; facing up of course! Those not facing up i’ll kick to see if it flips. When she turns 5 i’ll keep every nickel, 10 every dime.

My brother actually did an experiment and determined with the time it takes to pick up a penny, you are making $14 per hour. Picking up a dime, you would be making 10 times that or $140 per hour.

Of course I would pick up a dime, a penny, a nickel, any of them. When you’ve been raised poor, even a penny on the ground feels serendipitous!

I’m one of the 4% and I appreciate you being a thorn in the RV industry’s side.

I metal detect and pick up trash I dig as well.

For many years I have picked up any money I see on the ground. I have found everything from pennies to twenty dollar bills. All of it goes to charity.

I once found 3 $100 rolled up bills on the ground and to think I almost pass it by as trash, it was the green color that attracted my attention.

For my first 19 years my parents who immigrated from Holland taught me to pick up a penny. Then for almost 29 years the Military drilled into me to keep my head & eyes ups up as they had already picked up all the money on the ground! So I got really good at keeping my head up but scanning the ground ahead of me for change. Not very many pennies around in Canada any longer so glad to be in USA where I can find pennies to my hearts content.
