Me: quite often
Joke: ESPECIALLY WHEN i'M ABROAD
MUCH better day for threads today, don't you think?
is that foreign?
Also, have you seen the new 50p pieces? They look weird.
I've had TWO 2011 coins already this year. Must be some kind of quantatatieive easing.
hey look, its that guy that keeps banging on about bruges. if he loves bruges so much, why doesnt he just go live there? well, lets make him feel at home by overchagring him for a bottle of water in give him his change in euros.
mainly because i've never been.
I was just wondering when this situation of the overpriced bottle of water/change in only euros would come about.
Antwerp or Ghent: that's the dream.
no, today is rubbbish as well
Have you just noticed that part of your 47p is in foreign?
I keep on trying ot use it to pay for stuff but THEY ALWAYS CATCH ME OUT :(
Should take it out of my wallet really.
Nearly identical, It has the Queen's head on it and everything!!11!wonwonwon!!
Usually some disgusting Canadian cent.
I think people could give me a button, 2 chocolate buttons and a sea shell and I usually wouldn't notice. Don't like to stare down at my change when it's given, it's a bit like saying 'better check this, eh? you stupid retail shop monkey'
But I do pay for stuff with Scottish bank notes relatively often. I often feel compelled to apologise for doing so (especially if it's Clydesdale) then hate myself for apologising.
Pretty sure most of the £1 coins I get given are fakes though.
*Occasionally. It's all euros these days though isn't it? Rubbish.
a bronze coin that had entirely arabic writing on it and a picture of an oil lamp. no idea where that was from :D
just in case
think it's Egypt
works in the shopping trolleys in Sainsburys.
other day. Doesn't really count as foreign does it? Sorry.
the worst part is when you get some foreign coins in your change from some cafe or something you regularly go to, but the next time you go there and try to use it, the person at the till decides to whip out a magnifying glass and inspect each coin individually, and then refuses to accept the very coin they gave you the day before.
I had to use it in the vending machines.
Then they took those away so i went hungry a lot.
Does anyone come home with millions of pounds worth of foreign coins?
I use all of mine. I'm the annoying one that's counting out the right change in super touristy kind of way.
Not sure if it's legal tender or not..
