So… Shortly after I posted about the guy whose girlfriend shamed him into leaving a dollar on the ground, Lifehacker picked up the story and ran a poll asking their readers the following:
What’s the least amount of money you pick up off the ground?
As of right now, there are a little over 9k votes, and guess what?
Just over 30% of respondents would stop to pick up a penny, but roughly 51% wouldn’t stop for anything less than a quarter. Interestingly, nearly 4% wouldn’t even bother picking up a five-dollar bill.
Where do you draw the line? While I’ve been known to pick up pennies, I’ve also walked past them when I’ve been in a rush. But I almost always pick up nickels, dimes, and above.
