What country has 2 bills with the same number on them that have different values?
Give up? China!
I went to one of the local bakery stands tonight to buy some buns for tomorrow. The four buns came to 4RMB, so I took out a 5 and handed it to the girl. She wouldn’t take it. I pushed it forward again… still no action. Then I turn to my colleague who is with me and he says,
“You are offering her 50 cents.”
Ouch!!! I turn red and apologize profusely while fumbling for my 5RMB note.
The 50 cent bill and the 5 RMB bill both have 5 as the number on them. The 50 cent one is smaller.
Hopefully this will help someone out there avoid the embarrassment I just had .
You may continue with your regular scheduled programming…. 😉
