The penny is the most passive-aggressive coin.

February 23rd, 2010 · 119 comments

“Due to budget issues,” writes our submitter from Nashville, “coffee in our office is now funded through donations by those who drink it.” (Cost: 50 cents per cup, on the honor system.)

While some office workers no doubt continue to fill their cups without paying, the passive-aggressives in this office found their own way to convey their distaste for the new policy.

Putting 50 pennies in here is a hostile act.

    It’s still better than taking money, which is what I do in these situations.

    (Incidentally, 50 cents is expensive for office-ass coffee.)

      So, is it office-ass coffee, or office ass-coffee? Because I think I just learned a new way to refer to the back of a building.

      “Office-ass” is what receptionists get when they sit and answer phones all day. An office-ass will eventually expand to fit the size of the chair.

      I was unaware that office-asses had their own brand of coffee.

      I thought tannin-bum was what you get from saying Oaky-D-Oaky too often to Xmas toasts of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Zinfandel, et al.

      It could be a product of corporal punishment administered by a Principal raised in Napa Valley who brings to work an old barrel stave from home.

      Or finally, maybe it’s this guy (looking for Beans, maybe?)

    This has to be one of my favorites PAN yet. Because I would be the person putting the 50 pennies in to show my dislike of the new system. Seeing that note? Would just make me want to buy coffee for all my co-workers and pay for 20 cups a day- all in pennies.

      I’m a big fan of the PA penny. In college, we had a pro-rated fine to our whole dorm because someone’s douchebag boyfriend trashed the first floor men’s bathroom, and since no one came forward, we all had to pay. I had documentation that I was in the hospital the night it occurred and wasn’t released to be back before the damage was discovered, so it couldn’t have been anyone I had over, but I was still forced to pay. So I went to the bank and bought enough rolls of pennies to cover the charge, opened them all, dumped them into an envelope and put them in our hall director’s mailbox with a “have fun” note.

    PL normally has no regard for the folks waiting behind her while she counts out the change to pay for her office’s canister of Chock full ‘o Nuts, smugly thinking how her ungrateful coworkers don’t appreciate her self-sacrificing nature. But last week was different.

    After a full two minutes of presenting nickels and dimes to the cashier one at a time, a large man, seeing she was just getting to the pennies, dropped down two shiny quarters with a smile. She was so rattled when everyone else in line immediately started clapping, high-fiving and hugging each other that she grabbed her bag and left the forgotten pennies on the counter. As she raced to her car, fighting her tears of dismay and embarrassment, she realized this was not her fault at all, but the penny-giver’s. Before she even had time to ponder how to word her mostly-passive-but-somewhat-aggressive note, a small mob of customers came out and ‘pennied’ her.

    Truly, a hostile act.

    Team Pennies. If I want a cup of coffee, and all I have is 50 pennies, they’re gonna get 50 pennies or their gonna get nothing. This note clearly indicates that they prefer nothing.

      I was the penny culprit in Nashville. And SarahTX hit the nail on the head! I rarely drink coffee, and never drink the office coffee. Usually I go across the way to the cafe when I want a latte. But a couple of weeks ago I wanted some caffeine, and I was in a hurry. All I had was 50 pennies in my desk drawer, so I put that in the jar and had my coffee.

      A day later this note was on the change jar.

      After my friends and I all had a good giggle about it, I finally told PL “the pennies were mine” and explained “I wanted coffee and all I had were pennies.” She was huffy and said I should have put in an IOU because “Tanya has to count it” blahblah. Why the f*ck does PL care if Tanya [pseudonym] has to count it? (When I apologized to Tanya later she smiled and said “you’re talkin’ to the wrong person- It didn’t bother me a bit.”)

      I had assumed the sign saying “IOUs accepted- a collector visits you monthly” was a JOKE! Apparently not.

      I’d like to also note that my 50 “hostile” pennies were the ONLY things in the jar. There was no other money and there were no IOUs!!!

    What’s a K-cup?
    Would it be a major breach of etiquette in an office with a system like the one described to make change from the container the money is put in?

      As a non-coffee drinker, I would use the money jar to make change for all the pennies, crumpled dollar bills, and Canadian quarters that the vending machine won’t accept.

    If companies were smart, they would arrange to bring in a large cup of coffee from the best coffee shop in town for each employee.

    No employee would ever be late. They would be wired to work. Small cost, high payoff in productivity.

      You know, it’s really too bad that coffee doesn’t taste like it smells. It smells wonderful, but it tastes foul (all the varieties I’ve ever tried). If companies took up Lucy’s suggestion, there’d likely be some people who got double portions. And some people who got shafted :(

      Coffee is such a serious letdown.

      I can’t agree with you G. I hate both the taste and the smell. Sometimes I think the smell is worse, because I have no control over it! I know I’m pretty much an exception.

    Jesus stopping by for a cup-a-joe and leaving pennies from heaven can hardly be considered an act of hostility.

    the reason putting pennies in that jar is a hostile act is cause its not the funds for spending on beer.

      I was going to the worst place in the world and I didn’t even know it yet. Weeks away and hundreds of miles up a river that snaked through the war like a main circuit cable plugged straight into Kurtz. It was no accident that I got to be the caretaker of Colonel Walter E. Kurtz’s memory any more than being back in Saigon was an accident. There is no way to tell his story without telling my own. And if his story really is a confession, then so is mine.

    Hell, maybe fifty pennies was all somebody happened to have on hand. If it’s 3:15 and I need a shitty cup of Joe to make it through to 5, and I don’t happen to have two shiny new quarters (newsflash: people don’t carry as much cash as they used to), but I can scrape up a handful of small change from the bottom of my purse, damn right I’m going to put 50 pennies in the kitty. Am going to, and have done.

    We’ve had people come in wanting to pay their $10 citations in pennies. They do it because … Well, there’s a personal-responsibility issue on the campus where I work and people tend to do PA BS when they earn themselves a parking ticket.

    We make them sit in the conference room and count them out into ten-cent stacks on a sheet of paper with $10-worth of ten-cent-stack circles. We’ve learned our PA BS lessons well.
