No lucky pennies here: Police have charged Jason West, an aggrieved medical patient in Vernal, Utah, with disorderly conduct. His alleged crime?
Attempting to pay a disputed medical bill of $25 entirely in pennies.
As i sat here this morning and drank my coffee I came across this on yahoo, A man used pennies yo pat for a medical bill? yea? so? it's money right?
I myself am guilty for paying with pennies, not of that magnitude but 20 of them at least. It just goes to show you that American currency means
absolutely nothing anymore! I remember not too long ago 5 pennies for a piece of candy was accepted, now you are frowned upon, punished or even
arrested for using money that you're own government dispenses to you! Now just from reading this post from yahoo, it makes me want to go right down
to the bank get a bunch of pennies and go pay a bill with them just to prove a point!
you're hard earned money means
nothing! click here to see for you're self!
