I went to the Starbucks and received 3 brand new Connecticut quarters in my change. Since I had never seen these before I examined them closely. I put the 3 Connecticut quarters in the coin counter on the city bus and it failed to count them. There was no refund slot. I called several companies that make coin counters and they told me they were indeed having problems with the new quarters and also the new nickel and dollar coins. If you believe a coin counter is defective you have the right to have that coin counter seized as evidence.

Quite symbolic, considering how the state of Connecticut has been stealing its citizens money by nickel and diming them to death with new taxes and wasting it on porkbarrel projects  :sombrero: And that doesn't include a proposal to toll almost all of its major roadways.  But I digress...
