Gordon and his wife went to the Ritz where they had a whiskey and a gin and tonic. After sitting for a while enjoying the ambience they decided to leave. Gordon called over the waiter to settle his bill. He put a £50 note on the silver tray.
The waiter coughed slightly and said, “Unfortunately, Sir, the Ritz doesn’t accept £50 notes.”
Gordon replaced the note in his wallet and got out two £20s and a £10 note.
To be fair they did have a complimentary bowl of peanuts as well.
