Electric model car driver
Not at all grumpy today. Pippa arrived. My 2nd grand child, a 6lb 8oz girl. I forgot how tiny babies are.
I hate the things with a passion!Its virtual keyboards...........
I use cash 99.5% of the time, when shopping in person. I have a debit card which I use primarily for ATM withdrawals and also for internet purchases. I have never had a credit card - if I can't afford something, I don't need it.Had a strange experiance this morning , went into a supermarket , nothing strange in that , did a bit of shopping , nothing strange in that, got to the till's and a queue had formed, nothing strange in that.
Then a young lady walked down the queue and said sorry we cannot accept card's the machine is not working, well sometines that happens so not really strange, but in her next sentance which was , but we can take cash, something strange happened I appeared to be the only one who still uses cash, so I marched past all these people Having a right go about it and went straight up to the till with people muttering where the hell is he going , had my goods rung up presented the assistant with 2 nice 20's and a tenner, wished her merry xmas and walked out to my car with a big grin on my face.
Curious. I've been to places in the past that say they don't accept cash. The reason is supposed to be to deter robberies as there is no cash on the premises.The only form of payment a seller has to accept is cash, anything else is merely a convenience for the customer.
