What would you do?

Ok, just now, I saw a dime on the floor in the ladies' room while I was doin' my bidness.

If you were me, would you have picked the dime up? Or would you have left it there for some other happless, money-grubbin', grossness lovin' chick to pick it up?

Tell me in the comments. And I'll tell you later what I did about the dime. And you'd better comment, you buggars...y'all have been far too quiet lately. :P

heh. i think i blogged about this before. and i think i said it'd have to at least be paper for me to pick up something off the (public) bathroom floor.

like, a dollar. but that's just on the floor.

say, in a bowl, with seemingly clean water? it'd have to be at least $100. aw, who am i kidding? i'd reach in a bowl full of diarrhea for $100, but only because the sink's right there, and i could wash my hands directly afterward.

now, don't get me wrong. i wouldn't dig in a bowlful of diarrhea... we're talking about bills floating on or near the top, right? because we might have to get into the thousands for me to reach deep and feel around in that slop, yanno?

Maybe a quarter. But a dime? Unless we're talking dime bag, then no.

Ms. Pants said...

But definitely a quarter bag!

the worst would be if it's one of those trick dimes, where you reach for it and suddenly it's magically pulled out of the way by a mischevious coworker.

me, hell, I'm unemployed in a week so I'd probably pick it up with my tongue if i had to.

z, unemployed? That's no good!

Dude, remember all those times someone said, "You don't know where that's been?" Yeah. Now you know. And people are giving you change out of their change drawers all the time that probably has been in worse places. I'd pick it up. Plain and simple- that's .10 more than what I had previous to picking it up.

A dime? On the bathroom floor?

It's "silver", so I'd be picking it up.

However, I would never... under any circumstances... do anything close to what Mikey describes. If it's in the bowl, I don't care if it is solid frikin gold, it's going for a whoooooosh ride. That's just gross.

Faith said...

Well, I picked it up! Being in the unemployed-in-a-week boat, I can use all the free silver I can get. I found a nickle yesterday in the supermarket parking lot next to my car. I'm thinking that God is actually starting to provide for me already, even though my last day isn't until Friday. I'll just be wandering around town next week, picking up all the free change I can find.

For the record, I washed it. With soap and hot water. Oh, and it turned out to belong to my coworker. I didn't give it back.

I need to know how THAT convo went...

I would pick it up. Money is money in my book no matter how you get it.
As for going into the bowl for money, This is not Fear Factor, and no amount of money would make me do that, no matter if the mortage is past due or not.

I'd be ten cents richer. It's on the floor, not in a guy's ass. And you don't eat money - you spend it.

Besides, whatever is on that floor is probably floating in the air too. If you're breathing and smelling filth, you're breathing that filth in. What's to be afraid of?

As I said to the Twin last night while on the phone- you know strippers are out there circulating the money they've had shoved into their g-strings. And I'm not just talkin' the female strippers here, folks. Something to think about...
