Dude with much coin.

In line today behind a guy who paid for ten dollars in goods with entire pocket full of change. Not even many quarters.

Lest you think it was a poverty issue, he walked out of the store and climbed into a $50,000 truck.

Maybe the payment caused him to break his piggy bank.

1. Kind of off topic, but...

I have been pricing trucks lately. In the past, I have owned 2 full sized pickups, and one smaller truck.

Talk about sticker shock?

Some of these new trucks are more than my mortgage.

2. Bought my first new vehicle in 1973

Ford F100, as ordered, out the door for less than $3K. Was making a little over $4.00/hr.

4. First car was a Chevy rust bucket in the 70's...

I think I paid $200 bucks for it.

After a few more beaters, I bought a brand new Toyota in the early 80's for $7,500. I was just out of college making $13,600/yr.

Then, 2 full sized F150's. I cannot remember what I paid, but I'm thinking maybe high teens?

Saw a GMC the other day on the lot for $60,000.

5. No problem! I've peed into a jar

on Rt 80 coming out of NYC while driving.

It is my crowning achievement.

No rest stops for miles, and you are putting your life in danger by pulling over.

6. Yeah, I would and will never be able to afford a new vehicle any longer.

The last new car I bought was in 1990.

7. My two cupholders are constantly full of spare change. Now and then I try to spend some of it.

I have never counted out ten dollars worth, but maybe he was cleaning out something that was full of change.
