Everyone can use a little change...

"He's not American," Amy explained to the waiter as he walked away with our cash.

Jon still has not figured out American money. The denominations of our coins still confuses him, and after dumping out the contents of my own coin purse on the table for a closer look, it was easy to see why.

Our coinage can be very counter intuitive. Dimes are smaller in size than pennies and nickels, the new dollar coins are very similar to quarters and none of the coins are marked with numbers. And... what's a "dime" anyhow, no where on the coin does it say "ten cents."

Who thought this system up?

Americans, of course.
