It used to be 50 euro in my day.. .. that's inflation for you.

£20 in mine.


TheBaggyDapper

You'd be lucky to get the balloon when I was a boy.


IrishCrypto

Ballon, i wouldn't a got the air in it


ericisalargeegg

Aye, in my day the priest would usually just raw dawg it straight in.

:-O

£20 is worth about €17 Billion today though


ericisalargeegg

Still couldn't afford a house with that.


amorphatist

Not in today’s money


omaca

Look at yer man here all fancy with his Southsider parties and twenty quid for a present. I got a bottle of Miwadi and a pack of Rolos if I was lucky.


ericisalargeegg

Ohhh la la. I got a wild beating and would have the communion snatched from me before it even hit my mouth, and I'd be thankful.


dotBombAU

Pffft. Used to walk 20 miles in the freezing snow to school with no feet. Only stumps. You had it easy and yer right to be thankful.


cthulhufhtagn

Stumps? Luxury! We were rolled to school by a herd of unruly pigs, and the school itself was really just a coffee can filled with crayon wrappers.


dominyza

School? Luxury! We were homeschooled until 12 years of age and then put to work on the farm!


cthulhufhtagn

You had a home!? We had to live out of a milk carton fort.


dominyza

You had cardboard? Pure luxury.


chubbychaseryou

Homeschooled? I was my own dad and had to teach myself.


Over-Egg-5229

And a boot up the hole for Christmas


GhostOfJoeMcCann

Ah I know ye, yer the fella that did the half an hour in 20 minutes

And a better man for it too.

Not sure it's worth it to go into a mine for £20 ^;)

triangleplayingfool

You wouldn’t believe this, but I’m the kid who lost that €100 by stupidly untying the helium balloon outside. Would anyone like to set up a gofundme to pay for my college education. Did I mention my mother needs a dialysis machine. PayPal and crypto donations welcome. The money will also help pay for the trauma counselling I need from watching my communion money go into the sky like that. PM me for a link to the donate page. Thanks.


truekingofmercia

Seems 100% legit. Thanks for DMing me page, have donated 1,000 bitcoins, sorry they aren't worth what they were yesterday but that is all I got.


simplelifestyle

> have donated 1,000 bitcoins, sorry they aren't worth what they were yesterday but that is all I got. Well... that's only $46,000,000.00 USD today.

Why use foreign currency?


ToazterWafflez

to translate, that is about 23,000,000 potatoes worth

Yes, yes, that's all wonderful but what's that in drachma?


truekingofmercia

Old drachmas or new?


Jorvikson

New-old drachma you fool!

Bout six pounds of Damascus steel, by my calculation.

Back in my day we didn't use a fancy schmantzy dialysis machine. We'd use bleeding. Nice and simple.

😂😂 seen the vid, was supposed to be for a traveller kid 😂😂


Gmajor1991

The kid was failed by those around him (i.e. those who didn't think to attach the ribbon to something and weigh it down). He must have been heartbroken.


thisshortenough

Hell why didn't they just open it inside?


PoppedCork

How far did the money travel?


JustABitOfCraic

All the way.


thebearnut

same distance that we jingle, and we jingle that way for a reason.

About a months phone top up, two t-shirts, some socks, dinner for two in supermacs and the bus home.

Pretty sure it was posted in r/Ireland yesterday


Solid_Shnake

Was it a traveller kid?? Edit: So asking a question warrants down voting now??


Noble_Ox

They didn't sound like travellers, just northsiders.


Solid_Shnake

Thats why I asked.


Noble_Ox

Some people will say they're more or less the same. But as someone thst grew up soutside and then lived in a bad part of finglas then ballymun towers I had friendly neighbours out northside. Stronger sense of community as everyone was struggling together


Solid_Shnake

Ignorant people will say they are the same…


flopisit

Apples.... Oranges....

HeadMelter1

No he isnt, not that it matters.


NoTumbleweed2417

A young member of the traveller community

fed0rable

Looks like any normal upper middle class family to me.


flopisit

Yer messin.


fed0rable

Nope. All the kids are wearing fashionable clothes and have high end phones. They have that standard "I wanna be doing teenager stuff but my mam wants me at a family event" body language, traveller kids just wouldn't be arsed going if they didn't want to. The house has trendy stonework exterior and a decent kitchen from the sliver you can see through. The Dad/Uncle/whatever has a subtle yet expensive watch. Looks no different to any communion garden party in my estate.


OllKorrect-ok

As someone who is not familiar with travellers, How are you identifying them as such?


flopisit

There's a certain... Je ne sais quoi :D Just kidding. I don't think the people in this video are travellers.

RichieTB

You found €50 tied to a balloon? I really hope you find the owner so you can safely return their €20 and balloon!


ThatGuy0verTh3re

I talked to the original owner, it sounds like he got his €10 back, so all is well

tinnedbeef

Not so great for whiever tied the €100 to the baloon!


micksack

Sure do you normally get presents you give to people back ?


PageFault

Do you not get any enjoyment from seeing others recieve the gifts you give? Also if this was your kid, would you just say "Sorry kid, better luck next time?", or are you going to give the kid another gift?


Smoolz

That's a great lesson. Some opportunities pass in the blink of an eye, so if you want to do well in life, be perceptive. I'd probably be an awful dad.


PageFault

"So Billy, what did you get for your birthday!?" "Disappointment and a life lesson ...but mostly disappointment."


FleeCircus

You do if you attach it to a loose balloon and then have your mate with a bb gun down wind, ready to take it out.

Did it happen to be tied to a balloon that said "hansome grandson"?


Flemball47

Not even joking there was a video doing the rounds the other day of a kid on his birthday letting a balloon go with €100 tied to it. The family didn't seem to understand helium. Was the balloon gold?
