when I noticed that the sign at the till in the local posh butchers had been changed from;
'Due to the large numbers of forgeries, we no longer except Scottish notes.'
'Due to the large number of forgeries, we no longer accept Scottish or Irish notes.'
So much for, 'I promise to pay the bearer on demand...'
The first time I saw the first notice I became entranced and almost stuttered when asked if I wanted anything else.
