As a matter of fact, they don't have to accept it...

But if they refuse it, payment has been 'tendered' and the loan satisfied, and no more payments need to be made.

Consider the expression, when eating at a restaurant, and the owner says 'Your money's no good here.' which means your meal is 'on the house'.

I've been through this with the courts themselves; I tried to pay a small fine (one of those 'mandatory even if innocent' ones...) 3 times over a 45 day period, but because their systems were in disorder they were unwilling to accept the cash payment at the appropriate clerks office during posted business hours.

When they later tried to send me a bill for it, I sent a letter back explaining that they had refused to accept my legal tender multiple times, in front of witnesses, and that I considered the matter closed. It's been 8 years, and nothing further has occurred, nothing is on my credit, I can renew my drivers license, etc.

Unfortunetly, I'm a reader, not a writer, but I've been thinking, in a sci-fi context, about a creature on a water planet that evolved tool making ability in a gas pocket inside their body.

Imagine a whale-sized creature with a dozen prehensile tongues, breathing through it's nose, while building machine parts inside it's mouth.

(now, add a Japanese schoolgirl...)

"A teacher, an administrative assistant, a nurse, a librarian, medical data entry, child care."

How many of those are 'chosen' by women, as opposed to being effectively closed to men?

Teacher, nurse, child care... any man who wants to pursue those careers is likely to be automatically suspected of being a pedophile.

The world is moving so fast these days that the man who says it can't be done is generally interrupted by someone doing it. -- E. Hubbard
