The other day on the 850, as I was embarking on my journey to school, a woman got on the bus who paid with cash. There's nothing inherently unusual about this.

However, this woman could not have paid with any coin worth more than a nickel. It was quite a sight, and a sound, all that change going in. And it took a while!

By the time she fetched her transfer and turned around, I and a few other people on the bus were looking at her with a sort of awe. She raised her eyebrows whimsically and took her seat. I think she's the spare change fairy.
