Will your bank really not do Euro transactions? I thought something like that would be standard these days (not that I've ever tried).
That's a good point. They seem to have some bizarre aversion to modern financing but are happy to use other technology.
I don't bank with a normal bank, I use an on-line one. But even if I could I still don't have a fax machine....
It really is bizarre. It's like opening a shop that only takes pennies for payment.
Customer: I'd like to buy this please
Shop: OK that will be 348 pennies please
Customer: I've got a five pound note...
Shop: No I'm sorry but we only accept pennies as payment
Customer: Right, I have a pound coin and a few fifty pence....
Shop: No, its pennies only I'm afraid. Copper based coins only.
Customer: Well I don't have enough pennies to buy this
Shop: There's a bank across the street you can cash your five pound note for pennies there, come back and pay for the item that way
Customer: Are you serious? That's a lot of hassle for just this one item
Shop: I'm sorry you feel that way but this is how we conduct our business
Customer: How about if we just forget about it?
Shop: Fine by me. Good day!
