Josh,

Have you ever seen anything other than British money or have you not traveled at all, other than maybe the Continent?

Josh, I can say unequivocally that I am not upset with you or anyone. What I am is weary of futile, crass, conspicuous displays of wealth.

It does not impress me.

It is a mistake often made by the very young, and the very new to money. Those of us who have money consider it a fact, not a way to show off. That you place so much importance on prices, and have recently started displaying stacks and fans of liquid cash, speaks volumes...and I dont particularly care for what it is saying.

Take this as a kindness. The teacher-student relationship often involves corrections when the student messes up. You messed up...and this is your correction.

If we wanted to know what pound sterling looks like, we would have Googled it.

On a lighter note, anyone collect odd or rare currency? I have a decent collection myself.

Chuck why are you upset? What have I done to offend you?

If that was your intention, you would have shown a closeup of a pound note, a 5 pound note, etc.
 
Instead you showed a number of 20 pound notes, fanned out for maximum effect.
 
This is how you show what British money looks like...what you did was a thinly veiled attempt to show off.

Showing a single bill is sufficient....showing a few thousand pounds is pretentious 

Comment by Josh100LuBu on March 9, 2014 at 7:47pm

I'm just showing you what British money is like.

So desperate.  This is sad.
