?100 bills don't fit in my wallet unless I fold them, I like to keep my bills crease free.

The ATM spitting out two ?50 bills, or even a single ?100 bill, instead of a nice collection of ?5, ?10 and ?20 notes. I hate to pay my average ?8.24* bills with notes that large.


* Not my actual average bill. I'm not narf whom I suspect to be able to pull a real number for that. ;) :p

I can fit 200? bills without problems, only 500s do not fit without folding :(

An overall average? No. A typical lunch bill is 1.17? though, or 3.2? when going for some dead animal from the butcher's shop.

Here 20? is the smallest bill in ATM's.
Some carry 5s as smallest denomination, most I see go down to 10s.

All my money is the same size, so I can't participate in online "First World Problem" threads complaining about the size of all my money.

All your money is the same size and colour and we only know your last few presidents, none of whom appear on your banknotes. And when we have found a $20 bill and go to pay for something that's marked at $19.99 and expect a penny change the teller then tells us we have to pay $21.86.

Muricah, Y U No include sales tax in sticker price like Yurp?

Including sales taxes would be pure unadulterated socialism, didn't you know?

I have so many (4 if you count my TouchPad) computers, I can never choose which one I want to use.

I'm feeling moody and cinematic at the moment (and playing some music so at the moment my life is a scene in some indie movie) consequently I'm don't feel terribly like going to my expensive private school tomorrow.

I find my terribly expensive private school a waste of money.

My house only contains 5 rooms whilst everyone else in my terribly expensive private school has at least 7 in there's.

We only buy used cars.

I bought my suit for ?40 from ASDA/George.

I'm poor. :(

I'm mad my bank doesn't allow me to take a picture of my check to deposit it. I have to go and slide it into the machine which will scan and deposit it for me.

This. I'm also mad that my bank doesn't offer RFID debit and credit cards. I want to be cool and tap to pay!
