Before we went on lockdown last March, I took a bunch of cash out of the bank and stocked up on some wine. Little did I know, no one wanted cash transactions and the liquor stores would stay open for business.

All of the apocalyptic scenarios I run through in my mind resort to cash being king. I may be off base a little. lol! In the U.S. ammo may be the new currency.

It's always a good idea to have some cash on hand. Although, if all of the electronics, internet, electricity is off (Zombie Apocalypse) most of the folks working in retail likely wouldn't know how to take cash or make change.

GET OFF OF MY LAWN!

Sorry, wrong thread.

Haha, true. Actually I occasionally use cash when shopping and I also like to get rid of some of my coins (yes I carry them sometimes in my wallet that has an actual pocket for coins[bought in Japan]). I'm used to giving the cashier a certain amount of money so that I won't need to receive many coins in return. For example the amount owed is $10.45 and I hand over $20.50 they don't know what the f*** to do with it. I'm like seriously? What the hell happened to the ability to do simple calculations?

Maybe now that I've gotten my Pfizer shot I'll be able to do more complex calculations in my head. I'll have to test that out. Oh that's the wrong thread too!

Sorry, wrong thread.
It drives me crazy that cashiers canít make change if the register doesnít tell them. WTF? How do you get through life? My Starbucks is say $7.10. I pull out a $10. Cashier puts $10 into amount tendered and then I hand her a dime. A doe in headlights and panic ensues.

I am going to be driving past a large currency exchange on Saturday. Sadly, I just checked their inventory on the web...and the shelves are empty!

So much for getting rid of a pocket full of dead president pictures.....

Shocking that public opinion of police is at an all time low

I've met some incredibly polite police in my time--not sure why anyone would strive for the opposite.

It's a two way street and while I'm not an LEO, there are more than enough folks who are generally "not polite" to be nice about it, but we digress into politics so once again, let's stick to any questions rather than expressing your obvious dislike for the police.
