What's The Point of Cash Today ?

Post by Whiskyman » Thu Feb 07, 2019 7:15 am

Someone's posted in the football section that any transactions inside the Palace ground (can't call that shithole a stadium, can you? ;) ) are card only---no cash. Which prompts the question do we need cash any more ? Never really thought about it before but I guess we don't tbh.

How would I give money to beggars ?



Hang on, I don't.

It wouldn't surprise me to see some of those cunts with placards saying they accept all major cards mate. It's a very lucrative business for some apparently.

I remember many years ago being approached by one of the great unwashed asking if I could give him £1 for a sandwich (it was a long time ago). With my best Mr Cool, casual approach I replied "Let me see the sandwich first".

I never carry cash, which fucked me royally in Sunderland the season before last. Went on the piss after the game and at the end of the night wanted a dirty kebab, I went to around 10 different places and not one took cards, the place didn't have a working cash point either...it was like being dropped back into 1987. Ended up going to bed with a bag of mini cheddars from the vending machine at the hotel, which did take cards.

Backward cunts.

Was in a pub other day,brought some drinks.....bar keep didn't look up,just handed me
the "Machine"...so swiped my money and went to walk off.....he didn't quite get it... :lol:

The touch is well handy....and use it all the time,but not in pubs,for some weird reason,
when come down for footie or out for the evening,always hit the cash point and get cash out.

Does worry me tho...it's so much easier to overspend....it's just so easy to get a card out and
pay.....when you have the notes it's easier to realise how much your spending...especially
for the youngsters.

Maybe the Contactless thing should be limited to Debit,not Credit cards....

I still love going into the pikey part of town and super-glueing 50p pieces to the pavement so I wouldn't want to lose that bit of enjoyment.
