It is time we do away with the penny. Yep. That piece of partial precious copper, comprised mostly of zinc, worth only a mere cent.
I'm always either throwing the pennies in the donation jar at the convenience store counter or leaving them in the penny tray for someone else to use otherwise.
So why not just round it up and do away with it? Why should my vehicle's change tray/drink console be mostly comprised of what amounts to something worth little to no value? And I understand that 100 pennies equal a dollar. So do 4 quarters, 20 nickels, 10 dimes.
My gosh... do away with the penny already.
At the very least it would make the gal's job working at the local post office so much easier. Not to mention everyone else who works a retail job.
