    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    I try to only withdraw anything off my card when it's a must - when I have notes in my wallet I burn through them, mostly on food - just can't help myself
    Oh for a strong arm and a walking stick

    Tend to try and keep a tenner in money in the wallet, for those small things - a drink, something from the vending machine, the usual '**** this lunch is bland, i'm off to Greggs for a roll of fat.

    Also don't trust the bank not to syphon off the last of my money with some random charge, leaving me destitute

    Carry about $15 - $20 in my wallet. But pay by card, almost always.

    Almost always use cash. Would use cards if I was in America as their notes are a complete joke.

    I have to carry cash because my kids never do, even though they're all over 20 - it has been said I'm a soft touch - probably correctly

    The French ambassador tells me that certainly is the case.

    In the case of Franco-Fertang relations there are other factors involved - so shut up!

    Same.

    Love the self-serving machines. And now at my local Tesco they have introduced the scan as you shop method which I shall definitely be using from now on. Scan your Tesco clubcard, which releases a scanner and then just carry the scanner with you while you shop and scan what you want to buy. Back at the self service all you have to do is put the scanner in and it totals your bill straight away.

    Well timed thread, had a debate with a friend the other day, who was advocating a totally cashless society. Madness IMO.

    Always carry cash, though card is just more convenient for some things.

    Not if "tap and go" exists everywhere.

    Issue is of course how are you going to pay for hookers without leaving a trace I guess. But other than that no issues.

    Don't understand how tap and go offers any security whatsoever. From what I understand, someone just needs the card and the ability to hold it against a screen??? Please say its not that simple and it still asks for a PIN?
