Now they'll need to reintroduce counting into the curriculum.

Remember the old days when you could just smile and stuff your change in your pocket, having assumed it was correct?

Does anyone own cash anymore? Haven't used cash since 1947.

So, what is it that you put in the foh's hand every time we get seated at Parkside?  :ph43r:

Baristas always seem grateful for quarters, even after the nuisance of counting them.

 

I don't have much other use for them except when I go back in time to do my laundry and invest in Apple and Amazon.

We used to be able to use quarters in parking meters here.  Now, more and more meters take cards.

I'm sorry. I've lived in NYC too long to understand the concept of anything related to driving.

Surely they give you the option of paying cash into parking meters.

 

Surely you don't have to be banked to park.

They do have that option but meters vary from $.50 per hour to $6.00 per hour.  So an hour would require 24 quarters at some places and times.  Hence the need to take cards.

In Santa Cruz the only option is to pay by phone or buy a card in a city office that's only open on 2/29.  (something I remember as we once arrived there with two dead phone batteries following a long hike)
