Dane is notorious for finding and keeping spare change. If he sees coins laying on the counter, he'll pocket them. (don't worry, he only does it at home) If you give him money to pay for something, he'll keep the change. This practice paid off for him in a big way. He and his dad took all the change he has collected to the Coinstar machine to sort it and count it. (they had to put it in a backpack to get it all there, it was so heavy Dane couldn't even lift it) He had so many coins it took about half an hour to cycle all of them through. When all was said and done (and the Coinstar machine took it's percentage) Dane walked away with $280.
There are 2 morals to this story;
- keep your change because it adds up
- crime does pay
