I was interested to see that no one had mentioned any definition that was even remotely related to what my knowledge of case quarter. One day a young boy walked up to my husband in a parking lot and asked, "Hey, you got a case quater I kin have?" My husband replied, "No." After the boy walked away, I asked David what a case quarter was; he seemed to know exactly what the boy was asking for. "You know, a case quarter," he replied, "He means a quarter, but the term came from someone taking a case quarter with them before leaving the house in case he/she/they need(s) to make a phone call." In case your wondering, he was serious. Lori Wiggins Auburn University
