Re: Do you want your receipt?...
I'm sure there are many that find the question strange but for me, I have no interest in receipts for personal purchases. For example I go to a deli and buy some meats. The receipt is useless to me. It's a specialised deli so I would not have a problem in another shop with them thinking I bought it there. It's a cash transaction; the receipt is a waste of paper hence bad for the environment as I will just throw it away. Honestly it's the same for me at supermarkets.
Unless I have to (overseas online payment), or it's significantly easier (online flight ticket), I will avoid purchases with any of my cards. I prefer to take out cash. If you are just swiping your phone, the concept of giving over money is lowered. When I go to the ATM, I think about how much my balance is, how much I think I want to spend on the purchase(s) I will make. This makes me question the value of things more than if I was going to pay say via card or phone.
Interestingly, yesterday I went to the department store to buy some new chinos and all this year's lines, on all the brands, have lost the little pocket that I would use for coins. It does seem that society as a whole is going cashless. I don't really resent other's choice to go cashless, but I do resent there not being choice, and the sheep mentality society seems to have now.
