cashback is a brilliant idea and much safer and more convenient than standing in the street taking money out of a cashpoint.

you buy something from a supermarket on your bank card and before you know it you've got your shopping a big wad of notes.

unless you go to the supermarket near my office. in there they haggle.

i asked for 40 cash back today. and they said "how about 20" ?

so i said "no, i'd like 40 please"

and she said "well, i've only got 20"

so i accepted her original offer and received 20 in 2 coins. i thanked her on behalf of my wallet manufacturer.

put them in your pocket! that was my favorite thing about british money...the lovely sound it makes in one's pocket as you're walking into a book store. odd that the pocket becomes eerily quiet upon walking out.

Aye, bookstore pickpockets can be a nuisance. "It was the shady looking fella with the bull terrier by the door, he dun it, guv'na!".

I went into my bank and asked for a loaf of bread, half a dozen eggs and a jar of coffee. Would you believe that they were completely sold out? What is the world coming to?#
