When girls take money out of their bra to pay for something?

    What do you think of this? How are you supposed to react? I had a girl do it to me on the bus the other day... I told her it was the height of rudeness and she just giggled! I held out my bag for her to toss it in to so I wouldn't have to touch it. I even had a lady do it once!

    Has anyone else here had to deal with this sort?

    You held out your sack for her? Disgracefu!

    Have a sniff of the note first at least.........

    Surprisingly this wasn't covered in my etiquette class. Thank you for providing the proper approach. Americans are well used to dealing with it.

    It's very strange, don't know how it keeps on existing as an "accepted social convention"...

    It wouldn't be an issue if manufacturers just put pockets in women's clothes. We want pockets!

    Makes pickpocketing interesting.

    Money is filthy so the bigger question is why anyone would want it in their underwear right next to their skin.

    No one suspects a thing when I place my hand into my trouser pocket to pull out cash, but actually I've removed the pockets, and I'm just reaching into slits in my jeans to pull the money from my jock strap.

    I don't think I've ever seen it, seen some weird sht as I'm sure most of us have involving especially pyjama girls but money in a bra nope never seen it. I have been offered sexual favours instead of cash for local jobs I've done but I like cash not gash but I am hetero, alas hetero and married.

    My Granny was always at it.

    I cannot see the problem with it. It is a very safe place to keep wads of cash.

    She was a border fox. She used to keep her sterling in her left breast and punts on the right breast. I know this because if we were in say Wellworths it would be right arm in ... and say Dunnes or Quinnsworth she would be in with the left arm. Her technique was amazing.

    Haven't seen that myself, but I do remember being in Pennies on O'Connell Street in Dublin when the girl in front of me took notes out of her shoe to pay for her items! I thought that was a bit gross and the cashier wasn't too happy about it either. She explained that it was for security. That was over 20 years ago!

  • Registered Users Posts: 20,399 ✭✭✭✭dxhound2005

    When she was collecting from the Post Office, she would have the Irish book on one side, and the British one on the other as well. They went back in along with the cash. Border foxes always had a way of claiming from both sides.

    She'd be into Lisnaskea for the buro.

    Canny fox.

    Is this some kind of bus(t)

  • Registered Users Posts: 2,789 ✭✭✭bmc58

    Out of her bra,nah no problem.Now out of somewhere else ,that could be dodgy.

  • Moderators, Social & Fun Moderators Posts: 12,540 Mod ✭✭✭✭JupiterKid

    TBH I have never seen this happening...maybe because it’s much less prevalent than supposed by the OP?

    Cash is however always very handy - and safe - in times when the banking sector is facing another meltdown. Maybe having one’s money close to one’s tits is prudent when more banks go tits up? 😁

  • Registered Users Posts: 4,597 ✭✭✭Day Lewin

    It is quite common, honestly; I do it myself, and one time the checkout lady at the till in Dunnes smiled and told me that back home in Nigeria, everyone does it. Meaning, everyone who wears a bra, lol.

    Yes, as mentioned, it's a very safe place to keep a few notes. Never gets pickpocketed.

    Most people barely give a second glance when I produce the money: it is much the same gesture as reaching into the breast pocket of a jacket.

    Breast pocket - ho ho ho!

    I work in a shop it doesn't bother me.

    One one keeps cash/cards all there.

    People still use cash now? It could be worse. They could've pull the notes out of the knickers.

    Oh Puh-Lease. What a nonsensical thread. has hit an all time low. (Shaking head in memory of the good old Boards days). The drivel seen in After Hours & beyond is embarrassing.

    It's the bally ballyness of it that makes it all seem so bally bally.

  • Registered Users Posts: 3,191 ✭✭✭CardBordWindow

    I reckon that's the reason why you see so many lads sniffing notes in the privacy of pub toilets.

    I saw something where a fella took car keys out from the sort of fold/pouch in the front of a pair of Y-front underpands, and handed them over to the car's owner.

  • Registered Users Posts: 20,399 ✭✭✭✭dxhound2005

    I can't remember the last time I saw a man taking car keys out of his pocket. But it does happen. Men taking them out of their Y fronts could just be as common, going by my experience.

    Only ever saw this happen in the Carry on movies growing up

    Lady serving me in a restaurant once had to go away after I produced credit card as she had to swipe it in her lady parts in private.

    Haven't seen it in years myself, I remember it being pretty common back in the old drinking in a field days

    better than sock money in fairness

    A belief in gender identity involves a level of faith as there is nothing tangible to prove its existence which, as something divorced from the physical body, is similar to the idea of a soul. - Colette Colfer

    Hot money. Love it!

    Skin is all over the body, does it really matter? Probably a lot cleaner than cash in hand.
