Women and Change

Recommended Posts

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!

When the purse gets dumped out searching for a nickel that's when I make my move elsewhere.

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.

    • Fap fap fap fap fap... 2020 could wind up being the very year for releases that 2019 wasn't.
    • Mediocre song, mediocre vocals.  Guy sounds like a lesser version of about seven different singers.
    • Yep, that's a good start.
    • I dig that song.  Want to hear more.
    • Yeaaah...I hate that solo.  For me, the second half of that song is awful.  The first is off the charts great.  That signature riff?  Incredible.  But when it slows down, it dies.
    • Paul  mixes both Wicked and Radio Sun, Steve features in both. Don't if he got digs down here, it mainly Melbourne where he based .Also he might come down to get a suntan (lol).  
    • From facebook: ”THE DARK DELIGHT” out on April 3rd! Swedish melodic metal band DYNAZTY to release new album ”THE DARK DELIGHT” on April 3rd. First single ”PRESENCE OF MIND” out on January 30th. Formed in Stockholm, Sweden in 2008, DYNAZTY has since released 6 albums in a mere 10 year window.  Straying from their early days of 80’s influenced Hardrock, the band has developed and refined their sound into something that merges the modern metal scene with the past, crafting something wholly unique. Today the band is comprised of highly respected and sought after musicians, active on the metal scene in more than one way. Bassist Jonathan Olsson can also be seen in both LINDEMANN and PAIN, guitarist Love Magnusson and drummer Georg Härnsten Egg frequently tours with rock legends such as DEE SNIDER and JOE LYNN TURNER. Guitarist Mikael Lavér has been featured with both LINDEMANN and JOE LYNN TURNER, while singer Nils Molin can be heard and seen around the globe with the ever rising star of fellow Swedish band AMARANTHE. DYNAZTY are now on April 3rd set to release their biggest and most engrossing album yet - ”THE DARK DELIGHT”. Singer Nils Molin says about the album: ”We pulled out all the stops, pulled no punches and held nothing back on this one. ”THE DARK DELIGHT” is the complete vision of what this band has always wanted to be”.   Spearheaded by the first single/music video ”PRESENCE OF MIND”, DYNAZTY enters the new decade with a bang. The single and music video of PRESENCE OF MIND will be released on all platforms on January 30th. ”PRESENCE OF MIND showcases the raw nature of our band and is just the kind of groovy and melodic onslaught of a song we always wanted to release as a first single”.
