Feeding the CD player


If you’re contemplating kids, first put all the loose change in your car into your CD/MP3 player (as seen here). If you don’t flip out, you are ready for children.

    Love the picture. But the text is misleading. I mean, do you look like a munchkin sent from heaven? Do you have sweet little arms to put around your own neck in a tiny, tender little hug? Can you make ingenious-yet-naive excuses for your behavior, that could make Stalin laugh? No. Kids are destroyers but they are adorable destroyers.

    I once bought a used minivan from a family with 5 kids. They told me the tape player hadn’t worked in years. I bought a new system to replace it, and when I pulled the old one out of the dash, it jingled. I threw it on my driveway to crack it open and there must have been $10 in pennies. I almost called the parents to let them know what their kids were doing every time they ran in to pay for gas…

    I guess thats what happens when you leave your kid in the car alone while you just ‘run in and run out’.

    Somewhere, there’s about $8 in change, in the e-brake of a 1989 Toyota Camry, thanks to yours truly. 😉

    My son filled the heating vents with change in our car, now when we hit a bump it jingles. I’m hoping that the change will add to the value of the car…probably not

    My little one did this to us! Luckily, we took it to Best Buy and they were able to fix it for us!

    This feeding also happens to disc drives on lap tops so I suggest trying that first too. I found two lost debit cards and a few business cards in there. The debit cards were lost over a year apart. I just though I had a crappy disc drive until I took it apart. You are not alone. 🙂

    If it wasn’t for this car being totaled somewhere there would of been a car running around with roughly $50 in quarters from a laundry day long long ago… See why you don’t leave a bored 4 year old in the car while you run in the laundry? But that was the early 90s after all.

    Why has nobody asked this question:

    Why are you leaving your kids in the car by themselves?

    (this question is posted to the people who have commented before me.)

      Why do you assume that the kids have to be by themseleves to do this? It only takes a nanosecond for each coin. They could be doing it while the parent is driving. If the kids are alone in the car, it probably isn’t for very long. I imagine it is much safer to keep them in the car then it is to make them stand outside with you while you are filling gas.

      I totally agree. Do you people not use car seats at all?

    I used to work in a car stereo shop, and I cant tell you how many radios I had to take apart to get loose change, pokemon cards, mommies credit cards, etc out of them. I feel for you.

    We have not had coins, but we did learn it is possible for a 2 year old to stuff 4 discs in a Wii… and Nintendo has great repair customer service.

    my mother took our VCR in to a repair shop after we had it for about 5 years – he gave her back two cherry pits, a dried carrot, and various pieces of a matchbox car

    When working at a stereo shop, I had to charge a women $89 to take $2.59 out of her cd player. More recently, I charged $30 to take a gift card out of a Playstation 3.

    My kid shoved a nickel in the Chevy Avalanche CD player. Shorted the car and wouldn’t run.   $500.
