    Default Stupid Thought

    So your boss calls you in and says you're doing a great job. He's willing to give you a 3% raise. But here's the catch: From now on, on payday, you're going to get a big bag of random change instead of a check. It'll all be there, plus 3% of what you normally make. But it will be a random assortment of pennies, dimes, nickles, a few quarters, and the occasional canadian penny.

    So if you used to make $500(roughly $26,000 a year a week), you now make $515 a week(roughly $26,780). In change.

    Would you take the raise? Those coin-to-cash machines typically take 6-8%. And your bank makes you bring in all your change in rolls. Is it worth your time to sit there and roll up change all the time? Do you even make enough money that it's worth buying the rolls? If not, what percentage of a raise would be enough for you to accept change as your pay?

    Haha.

    If you buy a shitload of rolls, you'll eventually come out on top. Still, I wouldn't take it. I can't be bothered to pick my check up from work and take it to the bank myself. Rolling all that would be out of the question. It's hard to say how much of a raise I'd do it for, seeing as it and the amount of rolling are directly proportional.

    I think I'd be so annoyed that I'd say no, and start looking for a different job.

    Well no. $15 would definitely not be worth having to deal with all those annoying coins. I hate coins.

    Work 3% more hours and end up spending less time working more than rolling all that change.

    The coin to cash machines here don't charge you anything, so yeah I'd take it.
