It's official, I'm old.
A young gal, server, said "the only people who pay cash are
either old, or a drug dealer."

I guess old it is.

Never thought a thread about cashless would morph into a religion thread

I like cash, you can feel it and you can feel the pain when your getting low.
I try to have a realistic budget as to what i need then i pull it out, i suffer each time i got to pay for something and helps not to go in debt.

Some people like to use cash as a way to get back at the government for spending their earnings inappropriately.

Ummmmm, I think that is just a new chip-card that you got in the mail. The little shiny hologram thingy is the end that goes in the machine.....it’s not actually the Mark of the Beast. That’s why the USA was so slow to adopt chip cards.....all the fundamentalist Christians were convinced it was The Mark of the Beast and were convinced they needed to #wiseup.

When I was younger, I thought I had the Mark of the Beast on my forehead. It was just a zit. I felt I better #repent and not eat chocolate for a while. I thought it was the End Times, but I got over it.

Now as an old person, I can eat whatever I want and no #markofthebeast. It’s wonderful....I can just relax and read the Book of John and the Book of Revelations and all is good. :up:

discuss.

Also with carrying cash if you always have an eye out for the things you need , you can get crazy deals on quality second hand stuff.

Not only do I not ever carry cash, I now get annoyed if I can't just tap my debit or credit card. I don't even want to be bothered by having to enter a PIN number.

Jonrox, you'll find as you work your way up societies hierarchy you won't even have to pull out your wallet.
People will just pay for everything in hope that you will lift them up a few rungs into your circle.

If you have a boss (which is so 2007 btw), next time you're out and about with Zhe buy Zhe lunch. See what happens.

The day I let somebody buy me stuff for reasons like that is the day I hope somebody punches my lights out for being the world's biggest d-bag.

I don't think it's something I'll ever have to worry about because I think I was just raised better than that and hold myself to a better, more humble standard.

Would a society be better off with or without cash? what if every yard sale had a card reader? What if Chuch Sales had card readers? What if I couldn't buy my neighbour's peaches without the Govt Cash Agency or whatever it is called in the future, knowing about the purchase?

Cash: use it or lose it?


The way we as a society are being taxed to death, this would be the only way Federal Government could catch you on taxes. Imagine, drug transactions and a large sum of cash? Bank would have to seize it and then Government would investigate where did this cash come from.

Cash jobs at discount rates would be out of question, once again the contractor, handy-man would have to prove where his cash came from.

Greece is in a bad way today due to cash being used to avoid taxation. Problem there is more cash going out on programs such as social assistance and all other funded programs. Their country is broken as a result of Government taxing your every move.

Maybe Canada could or should take note and learn from it!

^^

you use CASH to dodge taxes on one hand, and hope like hell on the other that the gov't learns its lesson that taxing everything that moves (and doesn't, like death related taxes) is counterproductive.

The result is that the government DOES learn, and comes back at you with MORE taxes in one form or the other. They are smarter than us. They have highrises full of accountants all wanting to make their mark. ...... Idle hands, devil's work.

Right now, as we linger here on c-net, the Powers are making bonfires of our taxed earnings and looking hard for more fuel.

Give up, or fight to defeat the swivel serpents. Hang on to your wallets.

The best way to always beat the Government system is to become a government employee.

No matter what happens, not your fault or problem.

You were just doing your job.
