The owner of an Irish bedding shop has spoken out against customers who pay for items with cash they’ve kept in their bras. Michael Flynn, also known as Mattress Mick, posted a notice to Facebook to say that the Dublin shop would no longer accept notes kept in bras for the safety of staff.
- It’s hot out there, after all. Dublin has recently been experiencing a heatwave, meaning it’s pretty impossible not to be hot and sweaty. The women who keep their cash in their bras are therefore handing over moist, sweaty, nasty notes, and the shop has had enough.
- Looks like you’ll have to get a wallet or purse. As Mattress Mick explained in his post, “Due to the soaring heat wave across Dublin and ongoing safe trading with social distancing, we would urge all customers not to pay us from their bras and keep your euro notes in your purse or handbag at all times.” I didn’t realize that bra money was so popular!
- Mick even placed a note in the shop’s window. The sign clearly states that the store isn’t interested in your nasty bra money but also adds a polite addendum that tells customers that the store is “sorry for any inconvenience.” I mean, is it really that inconvenient not to keep your money in your bra?
- This seems like it might be hard to enforce. After all, unless the customer literally pulls the money from her bra right in front of them at the cash register, would they even know? I’m probably thinking about it a bit too much, admittedly…
