Wouldn't it be nice to be checking you couch for laundry money and you find almost a half a million dollars in loose change??
Well that's basically what the TSA does. Except, instead of finding change they've left in their own couch, they find the money YOU accidentally leave behind!
In 2010, it was $409,085.56. That's $376,480.39 in dollar coins, quarters, dimes, nickels and pennies, plus foreign currency worth $32,605.17.
So what do they do with all that coin?
They keep it.
Understandably, some people have a problem with this:
"Allowing TSA to keep unclaimed taxpayer money for any and all purposes is an egregious breach of its duty to the public that it serves."
Hmmm, what else can be done with the money, then? Perhaps it could be donated or something??
Also, how much of that loose change come from LiLo?? HA!
What do U think they should do??
