This is a question Conned

Have you carried out a successful con? Perhaps you hustled a few quid off a stranger, or defrauded a multi-national company. Or have you been taken for the wide-eyed, naive rube that you are?

£5! Photocopier! Blue felt marker!!
When I was but a lad (17) I worked in a double glazing company. One Saturday morning, feeling bored, I decided to see if I could photocopy a £5 (sort of thing you just do i suppose).
Anyway, took me best part of the morning to get both sides 'just right' wasted loooooads of paper in the process. So I had my fake fiver (in black and white, no colour copiers in them days kids!) Found a blue felt marker, scribbled all over it, crumpled it up to make it worn and made my way down to the factory floor, where I met old Joe (who I must point out blind as a bat and about 150yrs old easy!) and asked him if he had change for a fiver, which he did.
The rest is history.....

You do know....
That you're risking a literary kicking from Disasterprone for using his title styling?

It's been nice knowing you....
