"I have been carrying a few hundred dollars cash for many years just in case of serious opportunities, bargains, or emergencies.  Cash speaks louder than plastic.  As a former store owner I preferred cash since it costs money and takes time…"

"There's a reason for that.  McDonald's apparently found that people spend considerably more per transaction when they use a card instead of cash ... which is why they originally installed the machines.  Painless spending. JB"

"A card should not be required. But it is increasingly unusual to find a place where it could not be used. "

"There are few here that don't take cards. Pretty much the only things I can think of that are cash only, are some of the dicier liquor stores.  "

"If under $20 liquidity makes you feel secure, have at it.  Doesn't sound like much of a contingency plan to me, though. JB"

"I can't imagine not being able to use a credit or debit card to pay for tires or fuel. I carry multiple cards in case some silly fraud thing happens. "

Jack Bauer replied to Christopher Alan Epperson's discussion Men's everyday carry: What should a man carry everyday?
"If I blow more tires than I have spares ... tires cost $150 each, minimum.  A tank of diesel costs $110.  Those are about the most run-of-the-mill day-to-day emergencies I can think of ... and both can leave you stranded. What would…"

Betz replied to Christopher Alan Epperson's discussion Men's everyday carry: What should a man carry everyday?
"Seems like a lot to me! I definitely would never carry that much cash. Certainly never over $100. I really can't imagine an emergency in my day to day life that would require that much cash, but to each his own."

"and I would be cautious, Jack, of an establishment that is not 'set up' to take debit/credit cards."

Jack Bauer replied to Christopher Alan Epperson's discussion Men's everyday carry: What should a man carry everyday?
"The purpose of cash, in my mind, is for emergencies where a card won't work -- for whatever reason (loss, fraud, mistake, store doesn't take cards, etc., etc.).  But, if you don't have enough to cover more than a toll or fast…"

Betz replied to Christopher Alan Epperson's discussion Men's everyday carry: What should a man carry everyday?
"I usually only use cash for bridge tolls, buying small things at stores like water or something along those lines. I don't like carrying lots of cash in case I get robbed.  If I need to buy something more than $20, I'll use a…"

Quote
Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn
-John Muir

Finish everyday and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunder and absurdities no doubt have crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be cumbered with your old nonsense. This day is all that is good and fair. It is too dear, with its hopes and invitations, to waste a moment on yesterdays
-Ralph Waldo Emerson

Our greatest glory is not in never failing, but in rising up every time we fail.
-Ralph Waldo Emerson

Have a nice day

Thanks God bless.
