While mall walking with my wife, we see four boys come walking in, three of them already have their phones in their hands while the fourth is fumbling around trying to get his out of his pocket. As he pulls it out we hear change hitting the floor, the boys stop & look down, the one that dropped the change shrugs his shoulders and they walk off . We turn around and walk to where the boys were and there's 2 quarters and a dime laying on the floor, being old school I bend down and pick them up. Can you believe it, money is so worthless the kids won't even pick up quarters. When I grew up in the 60's I could buy 12 ice cream cones with 60 cents, of course quarters n dimes were silver then, but I didn't know that. Question, are quarters now the new penny?
