Just listening to a radio phone in.
The guy was saying that he enjoys the theatre.
He has received a message to say......
1. The theatre is now completely cash free
2. He must order tickets on line.
3. He must show the downloaded tickets
on his smart phone OR print them off.
Problem being he doesn't have a smart phone or a printer.

This problem must be duplicated many times.

My problem is I've not been carrying cash - I have to make sure there is a £1 coin in the ash tray in the car for the supermarket trolly, or indeed a car park. Tried to change a £10 note into coins at the pub yesterday as I was playing pool with my daughter. They only had 2 x 50p's in the till :whistle:

If you don't have a smart phone or printer you are a bit stuck. Printers can be got for £40 though !
 
I don't use my phone much , it's only for emergencies. I hate the thing so cashless wouldn't be much use to me .
So how are car boot sales going to work ?
Some parts of Bristol used to have their own bank notes so as to encourage local trade .
If people want my trade then they will have to accept my cash . It's a bit like self service tills which I refuse to use .

They were saying on the radio that even Big Issue sellers have started carrying card devises/machines.

Found myself dancing cross legged outside a public toilet in Robin Hood's Bay last week for lack of coins. Along with a crowd of other people doing the same!

One thing that this new covid world has taught me, even the young team can't work out how to use technology. They are great with twitter and insta, but get them to complete a simple online form to report a covid result is almost impossible. I don't think its an age or era issue that some people believe it is.
