For impressing the ladies...

Your at the bar, you offer to buy a young lady a drink. Your wallet contains only one crumlped note - the remains of the rent money you havent yet spent. Not wanting to look like the pauper you are, you activate the Inflata-wallet. It simply plumps up to give that stuffed to bursting point look and from a slit in the back of the wallet pushes out what appear to be lush crisp notes (really it is just paper with the top edge printed to look like cash). Now you can spend ages pretending to find that £10/$10 note amongst all the 20's and 50's. Hey - Its no different to a women wearing a padded bra is it? Just a bit of constructive advertising. Inflata-wallet - available with fake Aston Martin key fob set....

       A skinny wallet containing nothing but a fake centurion card is more likely to impress anyone. A phony single thousand dollar note (that you can hardly offer of course for obvious reasons) will also do the trick.   

       Either way, whomever you are with gets to both pay, AND be impressed (if they are that shallow, then you are deserving partners for each other) Rich people NEVER carry low denomination cash - far too vulgar.

       I have a phony 1 billion euro note that I flash. I fake a french accent to go with. Works like a charm around here.

       An ubiquitous chain or hardware/auto stores' "funny money" used to be almost regarded as universally legal tender (and some establishments would accept it as such).   

       Most people would pad their wallet with it, not to look rich, but in vain hope of remembering to redeem it next time they were in the store.   

       (Why "used to be" ? Their cashback went from 5% to 0.4% and they "broadened the selection of quality items", ie: broadened the definition of "quality". To be fair'ish, having cheque-cashing institutions advertise that they would give (real) cash for the bills at 30% of face-value was hardly good advertising)

       So, not a small gonflable wall, then?
