My coins are in! My coins are in!

Being an Amazon addict, it's not that uncommon for strange packages to come in the mail. When I had a padded envelope in the mail, it was a bit surprising, since I didn't think I was due anything.

Then I saw this in it:

I absolutely love this saying, and this coin reinforces it. The saying is a Polish idiom for "not my problem". The coin is dual-purpose: as a show-off you can use it to point out to someone that their problem isn't yours. If it is your problem, you can sacrifice the coin, call it "not my circus, not my monkeys", and you're outta there. (Not that I will ever give up the coin to quit...)
