I'll be honest, I don't like them.
whenever I get them.
Much more funt to run your fingers across
really? really twee_loser? really?
don't like coins full stop.
I try to spend the coins as quickly as possible so I can sit there with my notes and be happy.
50p, fiver, 1 pound, 2 pound, twenty, 20p, 2p, 10p, tenner, 1p, 5p.
you owe me £90.
£50, £20, £10, £5, £2, £1.....
how can a fiver be better than a tenner? how?!
and i remember chewie sweets that cost 1/2 a penny, great stuff.
i don't mind the £2 but worry that it can be mistaken for something else in shops and you end up not getting your correct change. You can tell people dislike it when you hand them one in their change and they double take.
coins haven't changed in ages, they were getting smaller all the time when i was in school...or maybe i was just getting bigger
So many things cost over £2 these days: convenient.
SO many things are over £2!
SO many things cost more than £15,000 these days!
I'm sorry but that's just how I feel there I said it.
I won't accept your opinion unless you provide some supporting statistics
You can play the world's shiniest but most boring game of Connect 4.
They just wouldn't be able to take their go and you'd be doomed to remain stuck, deadlocked in a game of Connect 4 forevermore?
so I can say, professionally, 1ps are the worst coin, without a doubt. They weigh the most in bulk (when you get change from the bank, you get £20 in 1ps, which is roughly the same weight as a small horse), they make your hands the dirtiest, and if they're lying on a desk and you've got short fingernails, picking them up's a bitch.
£2 coins are the best.
I'm surprised it took them so long to make them permanent coins, though.
I have some sort of spastic disorder whereby I cannot distinguish them from two pees by touch. Therefore am left in a constant state of financial disappointment...
But they are considerably thicker!
that's true. I obviously have big spasticky hands...
written around the edges of them. Who knew the treasury would be such big Oasis fans.
of pointing out Noel Gallagher's appalling grammar.
they used to make special commemorative ones. I have one made to mark the 1986 Commonwealth Games, for some reason
you know, the one with a hole in the middle - might have been the 10 Peseta piece
POUND NOTES! Imagine!
What's that? You got a fiver there?
No, just a pound
Ha ha! Unlucky, dickhead!
up here in Scotchland. THEY'RE RUBBISH!!!
Open your wallet "ooh, I'm a bit rich....actually, no, I just have a wad of £1 notes."
'cause I don't think anyone will let me spend them.
There is no point to them.
