Then a smaller bill will slide out and the wind takes it down the sidewalk).

Could simply be a problem when you're dealing with bills of different lengths and widths. That said, it'* such a relief to get back to the U.*. and fold paper money together of one length and width.

Always wondered...is this weird size output done for the benefit of blind people? Strange, regardless.
Don't mix up the issues with plastic money with having different denominations in different sizes. One has nothing to do with the other.

It'* a 5000won note worth about $4.75 at current exchange rate.
How about one "get out of jail free" card for when I drop my filters and really tell a member what I think. It'* bound to happen.

Exactly. It'* like having a spare tire ... you hope to never have to use it but you know at some point you will need it.

Not sure what you're saying. Is there a major difference between polymer and plastic?

Or did I make a forum error and mistakenly add a secondary issue about how the size of slippery cash can be problematic?

Far be it from me to violate any rules on expressing an opinion.

Polymer = plastic

You were making a big issue out of not liking plastic bills because they are different sizes, and the small ones get lost. In Canada, we have plastic bills and they are all the same size. My point was the size difference in some of the EU bills has nothing to do with them being plastic. If I recall correctly, they were different sizes back when they were paper.

That is not an opinion, that is a fact.
