a million dollars five cents at a time

My bottle of beer at dinner had the familiar five cent deposit markings. I thought, you know, I haven’t even thought about taking cans or bottles in to get the deposit in years. The last time I remember doing it was in Boston. Furthermore, I don’t even know of a place to take them back in NYC.

It seems that New Yorkers are willing to accede that market to the homeless and the determined elderly and not even try to recoup their nickels.
