Scotch notes are rancid smelly things. The tenner note is about equivalent to an English 10p piece
Was it those fucking awful ones off the apprentice?
Often end up with them from the bookies at northern race meetings. Can you refuse to accept them in those circumstances?
The cafe at work won't take Scottish twenties but take Scottish tenners for some reason. The Bill mentioned in the article seems a good idea to me to sort out any confusion.
The self service checkouts are the only thing that takes them.
Part of the problem is unfamiliarity - there's three designs of every note in Scotland and still, I think, pound notes issued by one of the banks allowed to make them. They also issue £100 notes.
Retailers in England refuse them because they simply don't know if they are genuine - better to be safe than sorry when it turns out that the Clydesdale Bank tenner you accepted was knocked up on a laser printer in someones garden shed.
Use them to get shot of Northern Irish notes when I have them.
Aye same here. The new northern bank ones look like a child has coloured them with crayons
Shopkeepers can refuse English money too or accept American dollars, Russian Ruble or South African Rand, they can also accept a mouldy fish in exchange for goods if they see fit. Such is the way of currency.
Another great example of the chip on the shoulder attitude of the scotch. Wouldn’t be surprised if they all load up on scotch notes before heading into england just so they can be offended when they inevitably get stopped from using them.
She could’ve just paid in postage stamps.
Used to be a lot of snide ones floating around and most shops don't have a clue what they should look like anyway hence the reluctance
"and if you want your doughnuts to look like Fannies................"
It’s not as though it’s a devalued currency so why do the numpties refuse it.
Certainly a crime calling Jamie Murray a 'tennis superstar'
That wouldn't surprise you?
Is that because you are a xenophobe, a bigot, or thick?
This is the only real acceptable reason. If you aren't in a business that handles lots and lots of notes you may not really know what they feel or look like properly enough to be sure they aren't moody
They aren't legal tender.
i remember very nervously accepting a £100 note years back
neither is more than 20p in coppers
I remember when shops down here,even Woolworths,charged a tanner for changing Jock notes.
So you got 19/6d for your pound.
None of them.
The best way to sort out any confusion is not to fucking well have them at all
