Or worse yet--here in the U.S. the other day my son/grandsons went to lunch at a buffett and the teenage cashier informed us that the machine for Debit Cards and Credit Cards was not working. They also do not take personal checks at all. She informed us that if we had the exact change we could eat as they could not open the register with the computer's down. "Fine" I told her, how much do I owe you? She could not calculate it. She told me I would have to do it as she did not know how to do "that much math". I told my son to go ahead and start preparing his and the two boys plates. I told the young lady we were going to eat and if the manager could calculate how much I owed I would be glad to pay it. She informed me she was the manager on duty. There were five (5) people behind me who heard this and could not believe they ran a very busy business like this. All of us began to prepare our plates and told the young lady we were waiting on her for the next move. She promptly locked the front door, told us to finish eating and said they would be closed until they could get their computer fixed. Is this the future of American business?

It's just another money making exercise they charge you for paying by card, so why not take your extra cash too! It's just another form of greed!

What do you do if (like 1,000's of people) you don't have a bank account?



Is this some type of subversive ploy by "Big brother"? At one time it was almost impossible be able to open a bank acount if you were unemployed and on Benifit, that is until the government decided to pay all benifit via the BACs system.
No more cashing Giro's, hence less need for cash and the closure of Post Offices nationwide.

I do DDs for everything for the same reason. We will be a cashless society eventually.

Bad idea. But everyone seems to be doing it.
Most of my bills are direct debit now. Didn't really have a choice, that was the cheapest...:(
