"A penny saved is
A penny earned." Not for long.
No more pennies soon.
Pennies just don't go very far anymore...
Now a quarter, that a fourth of a dollar. A good denomination for tips. To use when you don't have the exact change. Nothing costs under a dollar anymore, not ever a pack of gum! Just to use coins to reach one dollar either means 100 pennies or 4 quarters. I don't think people carry around 100 pennies in their pockets or change purses!
And we still use the quarter for measuring. Never a penny. We'll say a quarter of a circle, one-fourth, a quart, 25%. Never one one-hundredth.
I'm for getting rid of the penny. How about you?
