When I was a teenager, I worked in a department store. I always cringed when ladies wearing “tube tops”, would reach deep down in their sweaty shirt and pull out sweaty soggy wads of money to give me to pay for their purchase….. :S

That perhaps is what the notice wants to be banned. The other photo is my perverted idea to combine two unlikely partners.
Yes, maybe you don’t/won’t comment, Ramana. But I have plenty to say.
Cash in hand? How quaint.
Let’s forget for a moment that we live in the times of hot running water, showers, washing machines and dry cleaners. And that even jewellers are swines.
What’s wrong with money retrieved from undergarments? I think it charming. I have yet to find a punter complaining at shoving some notes into a pole dancer’s garters. And what of those women who stuffed their money into where it was safest (and closest to them), into their decolletage? Or sewed it into the hems of their skirts. And how many men and women sweat to earn money in the first place?
Lastly, I dimly remember, not that I agree: Isn’t money deemed to be filthy, fullstop? And it’s true: Money is dirty, literally. Anyone who has ever worked a till will be dying to wash their hands at the end of the day.
Tell your jewellers not to be so precious. And – he has just lost my business.

You are now being philosophical Ursula. Rather unusual. My jeweller gave up on me a few decades ago for not being able to produce any business for him.

I am smiling.
The images if you look closely, are for different businesses – the one with the notice is more like a grocery store. I doubt if you would find it easy to purchase anything for under $5.00 in Family Jewels!

It takes an weird brain like mine to take two disparate pictures and come up with a story like that!
So cash now needs to pass a sniff test????

I don’t go to such stores Shackman. I go only where neutral plastic is acceptable!
Very wise. You just wouldn’t know where the money had been, or what it had been nestling besides. Money should only be accepted out of very fat wallets or purses. Then hopefully an extra note or two will slip out by mistake.

Nick would it be just a hair’s breadth away form being accepted?
