Glowworm, in her unthinking ways, has sent me some money she owed me in the form of a Scottish 20 note.

Over the years I've had so much trouble spending or changing Scottish notes down here that I don't even bother trying any more.

My boss tried to help by offering to buy the note off me.

For 10 :mad:

I'm sure you could get rid of that in the BBBs if either of my brothers are working.

If Ann's paying with her Scottish 20, you might have to help her out.

last time I got scottish notes i went into a shop and said 'they're scottish fivers, is that ok?' trying to be helpful and pre empt the usual 'oooh is that monopoly money?' situation, and the shopkeeper sarcastically said 'well it is legal tender isn't it?'.

mr.G
09-12-2005, 12:34:23
Why don't you send it back and ask that wormperson to send you real money?

Good point mrG!

For some reason they didn't seem to like me calling scottish money foriegn or stupid when I was there.

mr.G
09-12-2005, 12:43:00

No it's not!

We had a pound coin with a leek on, and another with a dragon on - "Pleidiol wyf i'm gwlad" doesn't sound very English to me...;) (Trying not to sound smug or PH like)

See! Welsh money!:bounce:

I knew you were going to mention the welsh coins. It's just normal English money with some pandering to the welsh.

Not totally different money.

Northern Ireland has its own banknotes.

The Channel Isles and Gibralter have their own coins.

And the Isle of Man (http://www.kcshop.com/imagegallery/IsleofMan.htm) too...

My friends from Spain who were here in Cardiff last week had a Gib 5, not sure if they were too successful trying to pawn that one off...

After reading this thread I am now convinced the UK should adopt the Euro.

09-12-2005, 20:19:03
So that they'll start refusing French euro coins instead?

Copper wire was invented by two Scotsmen who tried to pick up the same penny.
