I have two Martinelli's Apple Juice bottles filled to the brim with change and I'll be damned if I'm going to buy another bottle of this stuff so I can fill it with more change. I used to spend all my spare change on things like vending machines coffee or people playing guitar on the street, but now it piles up on my dresser at home. Getting rid of it is like trying to spend Canadian bills. I called my bank that's right up the street to see if they had a change counting machine. They don't and also said that none of the WaMu or Chase branches have them. Trafficking in change simply isn't profitable with all those expensive machines to buy and maintain. So now I'm left with this pile of metal money. I'm looking forward to the day that the metal in coins is more valuable than their monetary designations so I can sell it all as scrap.
