And a Dollar Short


When was the last time you used one?  When was the last time you saw one?

The $ 1 coin was supposed to revolutionize our lives, and save the country from wasting money printing all those dollar bills.

How did that work out for you?

I thought it would come in handy when prices for soda and snacks in vending machines went up, but the vending machine people got really smart and developed machines that use phone apps and credit cards.

A mini mart clerk once showed me she had a drawer compartment filled with the coins, but no one wants them.

It's too bad.  The dollar coin had potential.
