Out of 10 self checkout registers, only 1 takes cash at any given time.

The message is loud and clear: If you use cash, you're a square. grin2

Cash is still the preferred currency when buying soft/crack, dope/tar/china, weed/marijuana, malt liquor.. .

Doesn't seem to be that way here. I've seen a "No Cash" sign on one or two self checkouts a few times, I assume it's just because they're out of change or broken. Maybe they're just lazy at your store and don't refill them when they're out of change.

That happened to a friend of mines daughter at a Lululemon store. They would not accept cash and she was showing them the "For all debts public and private" on the currency basically calling them out for not taking cash.

Merk lives in California. That should make it clear.


Cannot see signatures any longer so it doesn’t matter.

Most people can't figure out how to operate the self checkouts and have to get the person in charge of them to come ring up their stuff anyway. I'll use the self checkout if there's one with no line and I only have a few items.

A little off topic but, I had a cashier at a store refuse 50 cent pieces because she thought they weren't real US currency.

That statement does not require anyone to accept cash. We’re in a still-somewhat-free market, and retailers may choose how they do business.

Was at Walmart yesterday and they had the Salvation army kettle bell ring outside. I though they must be takings hit with so few using cash nowadays.

I thought if you offered to pay in US cash they had to take it OR the debt was wiped clean. No??? What is becoming of this country.

There are several self registers at the large Walmart by Century III in the south hills of Pittsburgh (I never bothered to count them but probably 10 self check registers) all fed by a single line so the person in the front of the line goes to the first one to be available. Only one accepts cash.


Boy will I be happy when ALL vehicles on public roads are autonomous.

I always find myself thinking "I have no cash on me." when I see them.

Holiday times means I should carry some when hitting grocery stores. I need to remember that.

I always get into arguments with the lady inside of the self-checkout machine.
No, there is not an unexpected item in the bagging area. This item was fully expected. I just scanned it.
No, I do not want to bag this item. It's a 30-pound bag of dog food.
Lady, I do not need to wait for assistance. I can take care of this, myself if you would stop being so difficult.
