Interesting article from Mashable on the amount of change that we leave with TSA every year:
Last year, air travelers left $674,841 in loose change at airport security checkpoints across the U.S. That’s up from $383,414 in 2008.
The unclaimed money — usually coins — is sent to the TSA financial office. Congress gave TSA the authority to use the money for its operations in 2005.
There’s a joke here on TSA and the fees it charges us…
