Default I guess the world pitied me

So yesterday I got laid off from my new job due to company restructuring (they didn't need as many employees for the work). Really stunk cause I enjoyed the work. But anyway, I headed to the gym early today because well, no job and the bank next door just so happened to still be open. So I went in and asked for half dollars and ike's. My teller said "Sure I got some in, but a lot of them look weird" She proceeded to show me a walker half dollar , (if I wasn't in such a depressed mood I would of had a heart attack!) So anyway I said sure I'll take all your half dollars and Ike's even the weird ones. Head home and I find all these! 13 Walkers, 5 bens, 2 90%er Kennedy's , 7 40%er Kennedy's, and it doesn't stop there! I found 2 PEACE DOLLARS AND 1 MORGAN! Still feeling down, but this definitely was a nice pick me up! 37.5% of all the half dollars were silver and 30% of the dollars were silver. Now I like those odds.

I'd take that as a sign that your future is gonna be very more wonderful than it was the day before! Most jobs nowadays are a temporary and unprofitable nuisance! Heck...keep us in the loop how things turn out...All the best wishes sent to you!

That is a great score! Walkers and Bens are awesome, but then some old Dollars to top it off. It's always nice when we can get a little pick me up like that when things are down.

That is super! Mind blowing! Incredible! Fantastic! Really, truly sweet! (That is to say, great finds!)

P.S. I know that being laid off is very disappointing (it happened to my dad the same way last year), and I am praying for you.
