Anyone else think this has been really badly publicised? It seems few people outside retail know this? :S

Does it really matter? At least next time I'm wanking I won't have to look at Elgar if I drop the note.

I luckily knew about it but I happened to owe my mate the exact amount of old £20 notes that I had, so I just gave them to him

Strange, cause everywhere Í've been to in Newcastle has had signs about this in their windows and on shop tills.

Just take them into a bank and they'll be exchanged.

It's been in loads of places in Birmingham and as mentioned above, the banks and building societies will exchange them even after the 30th.

Them: Why not?
Me: It's the wrong type of money
Them: Nah it's pounds mate
Me: No you don't get it, oh what's the use

They get tatty, and you can't just print more money without taking some out as well.

To be honest I don't really care about my money being tatty. Though that makes sense.

I'll give you free advice. It will probably take a lot of the ambiguity out of your retarded replies.

You: Sorry, mate, they've withdrawn that note now. You'll have to go to a bank to change it for a new one.
Them: cheers mate, I'll just use my card.
You: pin please.
Them: cheers, have a good night.

Thought everybody knew about this. Haven't seen an Elgar note in ages anyway. Even if you do find yourself with some you can still take them to the bank, so no big deal.

...have you ever met a drunk person in a bar?

You: Sorry, mate, they've withdrawn that note now. You'll have to go to a bank to change it for a new one.
Them: what the f**k do you mean? It's money isn't it? What bank is open at this time?
You: No sorry I can't take it, they're being withdrawn.
Them: Look mate, just give me my drink. Here's the money, why do you care if they're new or not?
You: No you see what's happened is the Bank of England have decreed...

Yeah I can understand not producing any new Elgar twenties, but why do they need to actively take them out of circulation? Can't they just faze out as more twenties come in?

You live in Nottingham too? I always thought you were American for some reason...

And I've seen and heard nothing about this. But I'm broke anyway so it's not like it matters to me.
