    New Bank Notes

    Had quite a laugh yesterday when trying to pay with the new banknotes. First time the person told me they did not accept the cash I was offering, assuming it to be counterfeit or something. Took me quite a while convincing her The next person accepted it, but still with a a lot of scepticism.

    Will be interesting to see how many forging/counterfeiting attempts there will be.

    I haven't seen one of these new notes yet. Is it really that different from the old notes?
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.

    Do they still get the Cape Times and Die Burger delivered a day late in Springbok?

    One of the ladies at the office had a problem the machines we had wouldn't take the R20 note, I think the note is wider than before

    I got to see a new R50 note today. My goodness! It is quite a change - certainly lot more than replacing an animal head with our revered Nelson's.

    Now there's a thing. I wonder how much thought went into the possible consequences of such a big change.
