More re. small change

Dawn's post at Frugal for Life about picking up change reminded me of my junior high school principal. When it was your birthday, he would come and ask you to step out of class (prompting all the other kids to go "WOOO, you're in trouble!"). Then he'd wish you a happy birthday, shake your hand, and present you with a dime, with the wise words "Keep this and you'll never be broke."
So of course everyone would immediately spend it on candy.

But what is cool, is the teacher made an impact on you still to this day!
