Penny Man on PA Turnpikes

I am all famous about my pennies and "request for receipt" on the PA turnpike. Almost everyone in the booth of my section knows about me - a guy with an oversize piggy bank, paying toll with pennies, a lot of pennies. One gentleman even introduced himself as "Tim" and asked things about me. Where I work? What kind of profession I am in? Why I need receipt all the time? etc. They are all very friendly after they know me. Of course, I am friendly too just trying to get rid of my pennies.

You know that they are making fun of you? Why don't you just go to the bank and get your money exchanged?

Donald is right. go go bank and change it. I did last week to put them in the rolls. It turns out to be a good amount and we can have a dinner this weekend.
