Just a fluff thread
Do you feel compelled to throw a coin(s) in a water fountain or water feature when you see one in public?
We have one at our local shopping centre and all the coins go to charity. It is always full of coins and my kids cannot walk past it without asking for a handful of coins to throw in.
But what about ones that aren't designated 'charity' ones so to speak, do you see coins in there and throw some in too? My DH thinks it's weird if I do and unless he's giving coins to the kids to throw in the charity ones, apart from the War Memorial I haven't seen him do the coin throw thing!
I don't know, there is something about the clear water and the intrigue of seeing all the coins in there that gets me. (sad I know). I also like the Greek origins of it being good luck etc.
That all said, I don't feel compelled to throw coins in at ones which are clearly not suitable to have coins thrown in and most of the time that is obvious when you see it.
So.... are YOU a tosser?
