"Would you bend over to pick up a penny?"

Today an elderly woman on the bus bent over and picked up a dime off the bus floor.  I said "I saw that dime but;"

she interrupted me and handed me the dime.

"I said, oh no, i don't want it.  When i think about the germs and disease on these buses, oh no I don't want it!"

she said "Oh, I have baby wipes at home"

(yeah, do you really think i believe you wipe down your coins?  ;)   

As I disembarked from the bus I added: "And I'm in WAY too much pain to bend over for pennies!"

"But that penny might be your lucky one!"  she said

I just smiled.
