Working The Late Shift

Ten dimes in a stack, five stacks to a roll. Start again. Ten dimes in a stack… Every day the same: take this pile of money and sort it out. $5 per roll of dimes, 50¢ per roll of pennies, $2 per roll of nickels, and $10 per roll of quarters. There must be thousands of coins in the pile at the start of each day. The sight of the pile leaves him exhausted each morning. Of course, if he hadn’t spent all night mining money from dreams, maybe he’d have gotten more rest.
