    off the floor in a shopping centre, only to realise it has been glued down and is impossible to pick up

    Did this earlier, so I had to quickly flex it off and pretend I was doing my shoe laces

    It happens to me approximately three times a day, between the hours of 5:30am-6:30am, 1:10pm-1:15pm and 10:16pm-11:01pm.

    LOL

    It never happened to me but it sounds like a total funny prank. Did it happen to you on April fools?

    Lol. When I ever see any coins on the floor, I always nudge them with my toe first to see if they're stuck or not.

    I tend not to pick coins up. I did when I was a kid because you could buy lots of sweets with 20p, but now 20p doesn't even buy you a little chocolate bar Plus I'd look like a tramp.

    You can still buy twenty 1p sweets

    I'm sure tip-tops still go for cheap too

    That looks rather complicated, I thought it was just the matter of having a strong glue near-by.

    This one's chisel-proof Epoxy would work too though!

    Do 1p sweets still exist? Isn't the minimum 2p?
