Well done for standing up to the cashier who refused take accept cash as payment.
It seems that most people are in agreement that a ‘cashless society’ would be a negative step to take, for so many reasons already stated. The consumer organisation Which? ran a campaign to keep cash payments available a short while ago, which was hugely successful.
However Tesco and other stores have been trialling new stores in certain areas where they will refuse cash as payment. I haven’t heard how successful this has been.
It looks like we will have to keep battling on and refuse to be domineered by big multinationals.
