I wonder when it'll come to pass that 'retail opportunity site' will be turned into a verb meaning 'shopping'.

The information given on wikipedia is certainly true

I can remember being in a pub in Nottingham and deliberately breaking a 10 pound note, Scottish one of course, every time I went to the bar because of the filthy look the barman gave me. "Fuck him", I thought I'm on holiday and I got a wallet full of these things!

As it happens, my husband was in a pub in Nottingham when he txted me ten minutes ago (he's on his way home from a visit to his father, and has a little while to wait for his train).

He didn't mention attempting to spend a Scottish banknote though, so I imagine he used the Bank of England kind.

My dad often sends me money- scottish banknotes usually, and I've not had much trouble spending them. The only time I did was in Boots- but they hated me anyway, the security guards were always following me round the place...

I don't think any money is real. if you look at a note it says its a promise. promises can be broken.

Take them up on the promise and they'll give you a brand new note of the same denomination.
