Ack! Canadian nickel!

I've never much liked nickels. They're too big and cumbersome proportional to their value and use, so I always try to get rid of them as quickly as possible. For example, I always put whatever nickels are in my pocket into a vending machine or parking meter first. I'd much rather get rid of a nickel and get a dime, or even two, back in my change, than put in exact change but end up still with nickels.

When I just went to buy a chicken parm sandwich from the vending machine upstairs, I naturally popped in a nickel first, only to hear the clink of it hitting the coin return slot. How'd I end up with a Canadian nickel in my pocket!? I'll have to find someone to palm it off on.
