    I think some people/small businesses do it when theyre counting money, to mark that the pile has been counted and is complete up to whatever amount they put the notes into.

    Haha, well I know a guy who writes "Not For Alcohol" every time he gives his daughter a tenner, it's a bit of a running gag, but it probably is annoying when that note gets passed around and ends up in the pocket of someone who really does want to buy alcohol.
    :rofl:
    I believe in some circles, banknotes are known as 'drinking tokens'.
