I’m balancing my petty cash today. I’m supposed to do it on Fridays, but… Well, there’s no way to finish that sentence. I just didn’t do it.
Whenever I turn in my envelope, the accountants are always surprised at how little change I have. This is because, in general, I try to spend exact change.
I always take three quarters, two dimes, a nickle, and four pennies with me. You can make any fraction of a dollar (other than a a bit) with these coins.
The only thing nerdier than this is the fact that I learned it from an Encyclopedia Brown book.
