O is for Old School.
I'm talking about the old school of old schools in my own terms, and this concerns cash.
I don't carry cash. Bills or dollar notes, if you want to be very specific. I prefer paying with my ATM or Credit Cards. All my transactions end up in my bank statement, and it's easier for me to manage and check everything. That's the hi-tech payment for me. So, using cash is sort of neanderthal. For me, okay? I'm talking about me.
Cash payment is too old school. It requires me to get the receipts and keep them away until the next tax filing. Nooo! It's annoying. But I guess, Neat Receipts was invented for that, too. Still, receipts are printed out. I applaud the companies who email me receipts instead.
I know that not everybody has succumbed to the ATM-Credit-Card convenience because of all the identity theft reports, bank glitches, etc. In fact, a lot of Asian restaurants don't want to charge. They want cold hard cash. Maybe that's why I don't go to them. I don't like places where I'm required to bring cash for paying. I patronize the establishments with Visa/Mastercard logos outside their doors.
Maybe I'm too picky, but what's your take on this old school payment?
