Caught in the act of stealing

When I was a kid my mom used to put two quarters in my lunch box for the snack bar. One day when lunch hour rolled around my money was missing.

Years later, I’m still missing quarters.

In the newspaper business we track our papers from the time they get off the press. We know how many go into each rack every day, how many are sold and how many were paid for. If, for example, we put 20 papers in the rack in front of The Triplicate, we should collect 40 quarters when the papers are sold out. If only 10 papers are gone, there should be $5 in quarters in that rack.
