Census Cash - an elegant means of payment for a more civilised age.

?

If there were only one of these two choices to pay for stuff, which would you prefer?

  1. Cash

    50.0%
  2. Card

    50.0%

    I just missed a flight. I've bought a new flight, but only have cash on me. I had to pay an extra £20, because I'm not doing it online with a debit/credit card. The poopoo heads at the booking desk don't actually know why this is, but instead tilt their heads like dogs do when listening to their master. They are unable to fathom why I have not downloaded their apps, and have no other means to pay other than the folding stuff.

    I hate everyone right now.

    I'd just like to add that I'm not in any danger. I'm in the departure lounge for the next four hours. I might live blog. I've found a bar, and a sixty year old lady is on on her phone on the table next to me. She just told whoever is on the line that she likes to get to airports early, have a drink, and chill.

    Think I might start a new poll - at what age is it unacceptable to use the word chill?

    They were using cash thousands of years ago. Can't believe we're still using it in this digital age.

    Why don't you just completely throw the towel in, and have them implant a tracker chip into your neck?

    Why do people bring their children to airports to shout at them?

    I'm torn between the choice. I liked using just a card, but the bank now charges me a quarter every time I use it as a debit card and not as a credit card, which some stores do not give me that option. So I find myself carrying some cash again. Nothing like a bit of greed. :rolleyes:

    I'll sign up now to a sub-dermal implant that lets us pay-wave everything. Cash is for primitives.

    Completely different issue. I'm all for time saving & convenience. Eliminating cash should also reduce robberies & muggings.

    This is what happens when you send all your useless thieves to some faraway land. Their ancestors don't think to steal credit cards.

    Cash is less efficient...takes more time to handle at the checkstand, and it consumes fuel and manpower to transport it from place to place.


    I still like using cash though.

    That post took more time and energy to write than if you hadn't written it.

    If it's a big purchase, say, comfortably between $50 - $100 and beyond, I'll use credit/Debit. If it's like a small purchase, like say a quick trip to 7 - 11 for a newspaper and maybe a drink, I'll more likely than not use cash. I like to minimize my risk of identity theft whenever possible.

    Card is king, it's really uncommon for me to have any cash on me.

    Or it is for people who value their freedom and privacy, or appreciate making a bit of money without having to be taxed for it.

    Is there anything else that you don't mind them making a record of?

    More advantages of a cashless society: harder for crooks & tax-dodgers to get away with it.

    Using cash only is like ordering pineapple on pizza
