    HELP MY DOG HAS CHEWED MY £5.00 Note!

    I have managed to stick the £5.00 note back together - with sellotape- you can see the serial number - however only small part missing at other end - of note. Will my bank HSBC exchange this ?

    No, you have to wait for your dog to pass the other part through then reattach it.

    Only joking, if you can see both serial numbers and can read them (theres one on the left and the right) then they SHOULD take it.

    gosh its only a fiver lol.

    5 quid? LOL

    Well if you guys have any tattered 5 quid notes be sure to send them my way okay?

    Every little helps guys, don't pretend like you have LOADS of money and £5 isn't worth your time; you are on a deals site.

    Thanks for that - all I can say is that if you don't value £5.00 why are you bothering to look at the Hotdeals site offers. Surely if you have enough money you would not need to save pennies !!!!

    aslong as the strip & the serial numbers are there they should

    But what if it happens again and again? Thats a lot of £5, it's like when people throw pennies on the street - they all add up (a lot slower mind)

    And yes tattered notes - if you had a tattered note and micoo had a tattered note, that would make tattered notes.

    i have loads of money, i'm not on a deals site because i'm poor, i'm here because it's a good place to get ideas for xmas presents

    £5 is nothing and i wouldn't lose sleep if i had a dog and it ate a £5 note

    It sounds like you should be ok, I can't seem to find the story where a labrador I think it was had eaten a large sum of money (£800 or so) which the owner waited for to reappear and pieced as much of it together as possible and managed to get most of the original sum back as there were only certain parts of the notes which needed to be intact.

    He's cool.

    All this fuss over 5 quid? i don't use toilet paper, i use £5 notes to wipe clean.......... sometimes also, when i have no writing paper, i use a £5 note and then bin it, and even sometimes use them when i run out of rizla! seriously, you must be some kind of skinflint!

    Can you tell me when I said that? Although true, I don't think I'd be vulgar enough to talk about money. oO

    He obviously never heard of sellotape.

    I've performed surgery on many a £5 note - makes you wonder why they don't print brand spankers much.

    But having it put to sleep costs money, which it has eaten, so you can't put it to sleep, so it keeps eating your money..... It's just a big circle

    Why are people soooo rude!!! If the OP thinks £5 means something to him then so what? What does it matter if £5 means nothing to you!!!!! He didnt ask for your opinion on whether or not "you are bothered if £5 is alot" he simply asked whether he could still use it!!! £5 can buy a lot these days, tins of food etc etc, and £5 is a lot to some people! So stop being rude, and embarassing people!!!!!

    Can I just say to the people that were rude and sarcastic regarding the £5.00 note - and the total lack of respect for money- one day you might need £5.00 to help you out!!

    Seriously mate if your backside is as big as your mouth - then surely £5.00 is not big enough - why not try a £20!!

    HEPY... you are making yourself look a bit of a ****. It's mostly just banter, but they do have a point. While I wouldn't want to lose a fiver, and value it, I also wouldn't run onto a shopping forum to ask for advice. I'd get over. I'd tape it together, try a bank and either bank it, or move on.

    Stop crying.

    Wait for him to poo out the change - kerrrrrrching!

    I'm as torn as that £5 note now!

    I was just about to say that I've just put another £25s worth on the fire AND I'm off to bed so I won't even feel the heat.

    But if I say anything of the sort, I'll surely be ridiculed!

    What do I do? Maybe I should start a thread and ask for opinions?

    It's a online site so of course there is plenty of troll comments you have to get used to that(like I have)

    £5 is a lot of money, its almost a hours work in a job, could pay for a train fare home, or a taxi to work, or a take away or pay for a few days heating in this freezing weather or a few days electric.

    Let's not overegg the pudding...........five pounds is not a lot of money oO But i'm sure no-one would like to lose it all the same.

    It all goes down to personal income, I have been a student for the last few years and now on benefits(though think I will have a job after christmas as secured 2nd interview at a shop) so I am getting under £60 a week income and part of that goes on rent, part on council tax, part on bills so before even buying food I am left with about £30-£35 for everything else so £5 lost would seriously chew into my income.

    Like already been said £5 could be the difference between walking home or getting a taxi or train etc so £5 can go a long way.

    Ddidnt realise hotukdeals hosted so many cheap flints, £5 is nothing in reality

    Goes by more where you live than having a bad job, i.e I have lived in towns with high unemployment due to few jobs being available and the ones that are are pretty much part time and minimum wage and then moved to a large area(Warrington) where I could easily get a £11 a hour call centre job(I turned 2 down as they clashed with uni hours and didnt have transport)

    dcx_badass

    Lol at £5 been nearly an hours work.



    £5.93 is the wage for over 21's and £4.92 for under 21's so as above its where you live that is the major factor to have the well paid jobs available.

    It's a strange and interesting thing to think about when people think about money, if someone was say overcharged £5 for their shopping then I doubt that many wouldnt go to the customer service desk and tell them about it, or purchase say a 360 that was advertised as £200 and they got charged £205 they wouldnt complain instead of just saying "its only £5"

    As a one off its not much, just means £5 less for something like luxuries or even having heating on a little less for a few days.

    So its a little amount that can go a long way.

    For all those saying £5 is nothing, please send me a PM, i'll reply with my postal address and i'd really appreciate it, if you sent it to me, thanks.

    But if he wanted advice and had nowhere to ask, and he had a question involving money then why NOT ask it here? It's a forum, primarily, about money.
