...Yesterday I bought some bed sheets for my new house, paid with a 50£ bill, received two 20£ bills and some change. Went to mcdonalds to eat, used one of those 20£ bills, they had some special markers, 5 seconds later, they tell me one of the bills is fake and they were gonna call the police.

Good: Problem was solved and I wasn't arrested.
Bad: Lost 20£ that, at the moment, do cost alot for me.

Vent.

Well, that wasn't so bad. If it had been in former Russia, the police had taken the rest of the money as well, besides putting You in jail.... biggrin.gif

Yeah, it's not that bad, but the problem is I still don't have a bank account and i have to keep track of my expenses since my parents can only transfer money after a while

Wow, that's pretty unlucky. Don't think I've ever had a fake £ note, or at least if I have no-body I've paid with it has noticed hehe.

Man, that is very unfortunate. Here, I don't think anybody would call the police.. infact.. I think there aren't any "bill checkers" in MacDonalds biggrin.gif

Unlucky mate, in fact a lot of places are suspicious of fifty pound notes because they are the highest denomination bill in the uk so a lot of places check those, not usually twenty's though!
