A pocketful of coppers makes no cents at all

WHAT exactly is the point of coppers? Not the world famous night club on Dublin's Camden Street, I am referring to the useless one, two and five cent coins. Just the other day I had to get out of my car at the toll gate on the M3 and bear the ignominy of asking the gentleman in the white van behind for 10 cent. Why? Because the toll basket would not accept coppers. Parking meters will not accept coppers. There is a pile of coppers in my room that have been festering there for so long I believe they are acquiring sentient intelligence.
