Many, if not most of my friends won’t bother to pick up change on the street unless it’s at least a quarter. Heck, I’ve seen homeless people who couldn’t be bothered to pick up pennies, nickels and dimes on the ground. I just can’t seem to pass them up, though, for the reasons sighted in the strip. But just as in the strip, the part of my brain that has a very real fear of contracting ebola is constantly at war with the part that fears rubbing the universe the wrong way. Maybe I just need to stop looking at the ground so much.

How ’bout you BOTreaders? What’s your minimum threshold for picking up change?
