Simple question: if you find 10 cent coin (US or Euro) lieing in a street, do you pick it up into your pocket and why? What would be the smallest coin that you would pick up?
I pretend to do stuff.

No, I wouldn't. In a general street, I'd probably not pick up anything under a €2 coin. If that. First of all you've got no idea where it's been, and secondly, I just don't think it worth the effort really. :uhm:

If I was in the supermarket, I would - but it would go straight into the charity box. I abhor small change (New Zealand used to have some of the biggest coins in the world, but they all got downsized a year ago), and I hardly every use cash.
I'd probably pick up a $2 coin, and any note, but that's it.
10 cents??no, is not worth the effort.At least 2$

Not like you know where cash you're given as change has been, either...
Anyway, if I notice it I probably would. Then, if I'm lucky, it'll make it home into a change jar, or into my desk at work. You never know when 10¢ might actually be useful. Just as often, though, I'll lose it sooner than that.
Yes. I would pick them up. I wouldn' t pick up one and two cents coins but from 5 euro cents up I would pick up everything. Nobody wants to pick them up so they always remain on the ground which makes it easier to find them more often. So when I picked up 2€ worth of 10 euro cents coins you will find a 2€ coin. I' m a psicho-street-economist.
I woulden't pick it up, I'd let someone else who sees it and is less fortuneate then me to make the desicion to pick it up. The smallest coins I pick up are quarters. My dad finds like 5 bucks daily on the floor of a cafeteria of a HS he works at. Stupid kids, dropping dollar bills on the ground.
I'd pick it up. I like money, and money is money. Might as well be thankful for what I can find.
I always pick up any change. More often than not, it turns into money for lunch, haha.
yeah I'm poor. shut it.

Sure, the relation between reward and invested time is probably better than for most other sorts of work.
