Argh! It realy annoys me when Im in England, and i try to buy something with a Scottish fiver or tenner. The check-out assistant looks at you like you're a terrorist when you hand over a note wi Rabby Burns on the front!! Holds it up to the light to find a water mark! and even when it says Sterling, and has the water mark, im told that "The shop doesnt accept this money"........ FUCK YOU!!! argh... i hate it. I work in a shop, and it can get confusing, but only if your hung over or someone hands over irish money. BUT its still sterling! its still the same currency... just cos the Ten pound note is green!!! GRRRRRRRRR!!!!


[/Rant]

*ahem* just wondering if anyone else has experienced this?

the scottish notes are not classed as legal tender, but FOR ****S SAKE WHY DO YOU NOT ACCEPT THE MONEY JUST BECAUSE IT LOOKS A BIT DIFFERENT, IT HAS THE SAME VALUE

Me "Have you ever bled out your arse-hole?"

Her: Facial expression was priceless - "What??! Noo!"

Me: "Well if you want to keep it that way, **** off."

She then turned away and whimpered.

Trust me, it is legal tender.

The only reason they don't accept it is that it takes longer to process.

If they are selling goods, they must. Otherwise, it isn't a 'sale' - it would be barter.

I've used some Irish notes in a shop before. They spent about 5 minutes making sure it was alright to accept.

*ahem* - Now you know to accept them, for they are not fake. If one realy wants to test the "fake-ability" of any notes, use a counterfit pen (which leaves a visible mark on the paper when fake)... dont be a fucking douche just because you're ignorant.

I honestly don't know what the problem is in England. In Northern Ireland we accept Northern Bank notes, Bank of England and Bank of Scotland... They're all Sterling, you silly c*nts.

Well, I think most people in England are ignorant of the existence of such notes, and thus will automatically think the potential buyer is trying to play silly buggers with them.

I never knew about this until this thread.

I work in a small village shop and we don't accept Scottish notes due to the large number of forgeries that are around. Don't ask me, that's just the policy of the shop owners.

In Carlisle theres loads of Scottish money about and they never have a problem but once you get to the south of england you meet some right arrogant pricks. I remember when i was young i went on a small holiday to Devon and they wouldn't accept some of my pocket money which i saved up, which was mostly Scottish notes.
#29
I used to receive money from my Scottish relatives on my birthday, so obviously since they lived in Scotland they sent Scottish notes. It used to piss me off so bad when people would be like 'Where did you get this?' and 'Can you use this?' The number of times somebody went to get the manager to ask about it was unbelievable. Argh!

Also, the money you saw, technically, wasn't real - it is a graphic of the money displayed on a computer monitor, thus it isn't 'real' money.

However, I can assure you that the notes themselves look as authentic as anyother currency denomination.
