See A Penny, Pick It Up??
"See a penny, pick it up, all the day you'll have good luck.
See a penny, leave it lay, bad luck you will have all day."
Really, is picking up a dirty, germy penny good luck? Although I feel somewhat guilty about passing money by, even if it is a very small amount, I tend to "leave it lay." I haven't experienced any bad luck so far. If I do happen across a larger amount of money, sometimes I'll pick it up but I wipe it off before I put it in my wallet. Technically, I should probably wipe off all the money in my wallet but that's not very practical. I just make sure I sanitize my hands after handling money. I usually don't carry cash. I mostly use my debit card anyway.
