Women and Change

Why is it that every time I'm behind a woman in a check out lane  she feels it's necessary to pay for her items with the exact amount? The searching for that elusive penny is annoying as hell ! I usually use the self check out lanes to avoid this but sometimes you can't.And yes,I've been behind men and they never pay with the exact amount.

Sexist pig!

 

 

 

:lol:

 

Actually, in my experience, it's not gender that correlates with a propensity for exact change, but age. It is usually people in the 70+ age bracket (those who have been using traditional payment methods, e.g., cash or check their entire lives) that tend to do this. The vast majority of people now pay with credit or debit cards, but progress comes more slowly the older you are.

For people my age and up to say, age 60, the pace of technological change has been fast for the majority of our lives, so we're more accustomed to making change in our daily lives and adopting new methods and technologies. That isn't the cast for those much older than that.

Haha, I do that. I'm gonna be worrying that i'm annoying the person behind me though from now on.

Why I do it I'm not really sure except for the fact that my handbag is heavy enough already without it being loaded down with loose change. And how come my purse has all that loose change in the first place? Because I flipping have to clean up all the coins left lying around the house by my husband - presumably because he shares your aversion to getting rid of it by paying the exact amount for things!

I'm one of the youngest here, and a man, and I do this all the time. Most places are already ringing it up on the credit machine, and I gotta be like, "Oh, I'll pay with cash."

Other than myself, I rarely see people pay with cash except as Dan mentioned, us older folks lol...my issue is with people paying with debit or credit card and taking forever to get it done...I could pay with cash 3 times before they finish!

That's also true.A card with a chip-you have to hold it in for a few seconds !

I'm tap & go all the way.

Pretty much cashless these days.

In fact I'm also generally walletless.
I have my driver's license and bank card in a slide out section in the back of my phone case.
Only time I take my wallet out is to buy stuff on my business account.

Won't be long before we all get digital copies of our driver's license and we won't need that any more either.

    • Lyric video for the new song:    
    • No replies in this thread, really? These guys deserves your recognition, absolutely quality stuff!    
    • Listening to this in a shopping centre with the phone to my ear and it sounds ok. But overall underwhelmed. Bed City were awesome and his vocal we top notch. But I like to think I can disregard that and hear it for what it is. I think it's the Christian stuff that is holding me back. And I dealt with Stryper stuff no problems so I'm trying to figure out why this isn't sitting well I guess times have changed and styper always came off as a bit gimmicky or shticky and kind of fun. It's also 30 years later and I really don't care Bout the Christian messages. They are boring now. Even Stryper aren't as obvious in their lyrics these days. Or maybe it's all just a reminder of the shit Josh did that landed him in jail? Silly to constantly remind people of that. Would prefer just some fun rock music I think.  
    • Nate seems like a legit nice guy too… From his FB page: I just want to thank everyone for such a positive response on the latest announcement! It means the world❤️ I will do my absolute best to honor Cj’s legacy and keep his name alive each show. Hope to see you all soon Best Regards  Nate Peck   And from earlier this year, this lovely pic of him and CJ
    • On Instagram where Stevie Rachelle posted the link to the story it was crazy how many people don't know anything about the bands recent history or read the article. Several people moaning how they are replacing him too quick etc without realising he has been touring with the band since last year when he was covering for a recovering CJ and that Nate and CJ actually became really good friends. CJ would have wanted them to carry on and gave this guy his blessing, essentially.

    • Good news.  Nate seems like a great dude and from what I've seen, he does a nice job.  I think he's the right guy for that gig being he was filling in with CJ's blessing and he has the right tone in his voice to do the songs justice.  Granted, there's no replacing CJ's unique voice but good that they'll still be out there celebrating the music. One thing I wonder is if they'll maybe considering doing some new music with Nate?  I mean, he's a young guy and would probably love to record some new music with them.  Not sure how much demand there would be for it but I like to see them put out a new song at least and just see how it goes.  It would be nice to give Nate something of his own in the setlist too.  I'm not gonna hold my breath though lol.
