A shop in Dublin has announced a 'No Bra Money' rule to their customers.
Mattress salesman Michael Flynn has taken a stance against those who choose to pay for items with notes stored in their bras.
With temperatures soaring to over 30°C he decided to issue an urgent notice on a poster outside his Dublin store.
Flynn - nicknamed 'Mattress Mick' - wrote: "NO BRA MONEY. Due to increasing temperatures, and for our own personal safety, we will NOT be accepting any bra money. Sorry for any inconvenience."
Writing on Facebook he added: "An URGENT alert in our #coolock store.
"Due to soaring heat wave across Dublin and on going safe trading with social distancing we would urge all customers not to pay us from their bras and keep your euro notes in your purse or handbag at all times."
Many users thought that the new rule was hilarious.
One wrote: "Sure who'd be wearing a bra in this weather."
Another user seemed to jokingly disagree with the notice and wrote: "Personal Safety! That's hilariously ridiculous.
"What do you think the € euro notes are gonna do to you .....LOL .....Jump up and bite you on the neck. They aren't going to attack you....Chill."
Some took the notice a bit more seriously that others.
One wrote: "Are you serious you clown. You don't wanna make money at all ffs!"
The hot weather is expected to continue throughout the UK and Ireland, with the Met Office now predicting a two-week heatwave next month.
Experts are expecting to see a continuation of steamy temperatures, with 2 to 16 August set to be another scorcher.
The Met Office explained: "By early August, warmer and drier-than-average conditions look likely to return for much of the UK, although there is an increased risk of thunderstorms, especially in the southeast.
"Above-average temperatures continue to be signalled for much of the period, perhaps becoming very warm or hot at times in the south."
This comes after the Met Office issued on 19 July its first ever 'extreme heat' weather warning for the UK.
