I’ve been at work for about an hour and a half, and in that time I’ve seen a grand total of ten customers. And yet, I’ve had to go downstairs three times already to get change from the safe, because out of ten seven of them paid with 20 or 50 Euro notes – usually for 1 or 2 euros.

There’s a recession on, I hear. The fact that we’re seeing a lot less customers and that our income has gone down by at least a third would seem to indicate so, anyway. So why the fuck are people going around exclusively with big notes?? Aren’t you supposed to save every penny – and therefore use them to pay for stuff rather than lose them inside the couch or throw them at passing dogs and knackers – when you fear you might be running out of money soon?

If another one of those wankers comes around to pay for two photocopies with a hundred euros bill, I’ll throw the book at him. Litterally. I’ve got a big, fat, heavy bilingual dictionary behind me, I bet I could kill a moron at ten paces with it.

Ah, the weight of knowledge…

    You’re french though. I doubt you have a particularly powerful throw!

    It’d be easy to cast doubt on my ability to throw a coin across the room – especially for you who know me! But I fail to see why you mention being French in there. Considering our Rugby team has been whooping yours consistently for about 10 years now, I wouldn’t yap about such things if I were you! ^_^
