Irish money anger


Bournemouth Echo: Punter arrested, handcuffed and helped down a steep flight of concrete stairs over Irish twenty pound note

Important details of this story emerge in the final paragraph, as you'd expect.

Hahaha. Excellent logic in one of the comments: "If you buy £1 worth of goods and use a fake £20 note, the effect on the retailer is double. The retailer has 'given away' £1 of goods, plus £19 of change, PLUS is then stuck with a £20 unusable note, therefore £40 down."

Therefore £40 down. You gotta love it. They would be better off just accepting a blank piece of paper and giving£1 goods and £19 change, as they'd not have a £20 unusable note... Tossers.
