Loose Change

The most defeated feeling in the world is when you're so broke you have to round up all the piles of change in your house and take them to the bank to see if it adds up to any real amount money. It's when if you had a barrel, you would climb into it to scrape the bottom for more change. And the most insulting thing is when you take all that change to one of those changing machines in the grocery store, and after you dump in the $45 in nickels that you're going to be using to pay for lunch for the next three days, you find out that the machine takes a 5% service fee off the top. You're really in no position to argue, but that machine ought to at least cook you a cup of instant soup for taking 5% of your hard earned cash.
