I was in a shop earlier and they gave me a Scottish fiver in my change (I'm in England). I pointed it out and asked for an English note. The shop assistant gave me a load of attitude. I said as far as I am aware it is up o the individual shops in this country whether or not they want to take Scottish notes as it's not legal tender. Whereas English notes are legal tender in Scotland and I don't want to be stuck with a note nobody want to accept. She tried arguing with me and telling me I was wrong......was I right or wrong??? Lol I got it swapped anyway.
