How Do I Use This RM50?

I was given RM50 the other day by my mother in law. Normally that would be cause for excitement right? I mean, it's free money! Not this time. When she handed me the RM50 note, her parting words were "I cannot use this note, pls send it back to the bank". Bank? What bank? When I looked down on the note, then I understood what she meant. Have a look below.

My unusable RM50

I've read that it is possible to return torn notes back to our national bank if the majority of the note is still visible, but until now I could not find the time to send it back yet. Actually I do not know how, probably go to Bank Simpanan Nasional or something.

Anyway here's what I have tried to get rid of the note using a myriad of ways.

1. Passing to coffee shop auntie to buy breakfast - Rejected
Her exact words were "Aiyo!, Cannot use, cannot use" in cantonese. 

2. Using it at the highway tolls - Rejected
The operator promptly returned it to me, and she didn't even say anything, just glared at me with outstretched hands waiting for my toll money. I smiled back and paid my dues. 

3. Using it to buy movie tickets at GSC, TGV - Rejected
RM50 can pay for at least 4 movie tickets! Why do you reject me, now I cannot invite more friends to watch movie together.

4. Using it via bank cash deposit machine when paying for my home loan, credit card - Rejected
The machine vomited out my cash. Machines are getting smarter, one day they'll rule the world I tell you.
 
5. Thought of using by putting angpao for friends wedding! - Cancelled it.
I cancelled this plan because I knew I will feel guilty afterwards. Come on, later the restaurant don't accept my note how? Then my friend will trace back the RM50 to me.

Oh well, guess I'm still stuck with this note until I find time during office hours to go to the bank and enquire if they'll take it back.

  13. Why is there a "sample" stamped on the banknote?

    Your money looks cool specially the Gumamela flower. (I'm not sure if the name is the same.)

  15. Neil: I edited the picture to show sample, because it is illegal to display the Ringgit Malaysia in photos without a sample word on it. At least that's what I read.

    It's called the bunga raya, not sure what's it called in English. :)

  19. Guess your last resort is to bank on the bank. I have got one RM5 note and its just a tear of less than 1 cm without any part missing and in one whole piece but got rejected by the coffee shop owner. The owner sits on her chair too free counting and folding the money nicely.
