Sign Of The Week (12)

During the recent heatwave, where did you stow your money? Skimpy clothing means fewer pockets. Some women, it seems, have taken to stuffing their notes and cards down their bras.

Enterprising as it may be the practice is causing some consternation amongst retailers. The staff of Mattress Mick in Dublin have taken matters into their own hands by purring a notice in the store’s window warning “No Bra Money” with the rider that “due to increasing temperatures, and for our own personal safety, we will NOT be accepting any bra money. Sorry for any inconvenience”.

It is not clear how rife the practice is, and I cannot help thinking that it is all an amusing and effective publicity stunt. On the other hand, if you are looking for a mattress to stuff your money under, you may just as well pay for it with money plucked from your underwear.
