      Now if only we can convince Americans to adopt dollar coins, rather than paper notes (granted, there have been several attempts over the last 40 years, but surprised that they never took off).

        The country is ruled by cranky old misogynists (dollar coins have traditionally featured women)

        We may well never get them in wide circulation, now that the yoof have moved on to paying for things with their phones

          Nothing like that, I'm afraid. I am using Google Chrome on a Huawei device (I am equal opportunity about which side harvests my data) if that helps anyone trying to help the helpless.

            I can post it into Notepad, mind.

              If you aren't using the app, can't you just paste the url from Chrome?

                Sorry, I wasn't clear, I am using the app (Fussbudget might mention that I am never not using the app), but when I click on More I get Unsubscribe (told you), Download (if downloadable), Bookmark episode, Share, then when I click on Share the varying tweet, WhatsApp, Notepad etc. options.

                Anyway, I know you relish the challenge, but as I can now do it in an acceptable fashion you're probably best saving your mental energy for the next time you have to try and teach me something so blindingly easy and obvious...

                  Curious

                  Must relate to Huawei's weird application of Android

                    Apparently he qualified because he was a US resident and was working, I guess it was to do with his visa. Either that or an elaborate publicity stunt - there were demonstrations in London against him getting the call.

                      Anyway thread related earworm

                          Have just remembered a colleague who refers to low value tax cases, meagre takings or any small amounts (chickenfeed, as my uncle used to say to try and psych me out when playing Monopoly) as being 'ten bob and a toffee apple'.
                          She's a week younger than me and postdates D-Day too.

                            I was a Cub and did "bob-a-job." Commence your tittering now. All right, that's enough.

                            Apparently it only ended in 1992.

                              Well, it's two and six of one and twelve and a half of the other.

                                That's half-a-crown a job, surely.

                                  Haven't read the whole thread but has anyone raised the 'pee' versus 'pence' thing? 'Pee' makes me cringe...

                                    My Mum hated it at the time too. I guess "New Pence" was too much of a mouthful.

                                      As likely as getting Americans (and older Britons) to accept Celsius

                                        I've never liked "pee", either in place of "pence" or in place of "piss".
