I guess where money is concerned, different rules or habits apply when you cross the border into another country. I can well remember shops in England refusing to accept Scottish banknotes. My strangest incident happened in Brussels in the late 1970’s.

I was there on business, and went to a cinema one night. After the usherette had taken me to my seat, she hesitated then walked away in the huff. The gent sitting next to me kindly explained that in Brussels, the usherettes did not get any wages. They relied on tips.

When the programme was completed, I went looking for her and apologised, explaining my ignorance of her financial situation. I gave her some money in the currency used by her country. She gave me a warm smile.

I wonder if usherettes in Belgium, now all have to receive payment from their employers under EU rules? Must Google and find out.

good one Ashfield ! I tried the heat beads in lieu of the electric blanket,no competition ,and now we find they are dangerous,catch fire,back to the electric blanket. I grew up in Glasgow with a hot water bottle like that,it was called a wally boatle not a pig. Never heard of that.

We just called it a hot water bottle. My granny used them when I was a wee girl, so I thought it was great fun to have one when we stayed with her.
