boxes of pennies

We have a rule in our family when we deal with bureaucratic organizations like home owners associations, the military, tax offices, things like that. It's the "3 visit rule". By that we mean, you make one visit to get your admin thing done and find out the office is closed. On visit two you arrive at the correct hours, but find that you have not brought the critical bit of paperwork or do not have the key piece of required knowledge. Finally on visit 3 you successfully complete your business. The most recent example of this was trying to get an X-Ray through Kaiser. Visit one - hours. Visit two wrong office for *that* kind of x-ray. Visit three x-rays.

So now there is a little culture jamming to respond thanks to this webpage: Pay with pennies

"Greetings. This site is about my culture jamming involving large payments in pennies to organizations that are difficult to deal with. Banks, government agencies, and the occasional retailer have all fallen prey to "penny payments." In today's society, it is all too common to hassle the consumer or the taxpayer. More and more we are asked to "hold," "wait in line," "fill out complex or time consuming forms," or give up confidential information. ..."

Can you see where this is going?
