I don't understand why there is still a furious paranoia of catching something being out in public. By the very definition of the action you are, we are, leaving ourselves open to catching whatever bug is current. The only way to avoid this is to seal yourself inside your home and never leave it. Screw that, just use good hygiene and common sense precautions. Every single thing you touch has the potential to host an infections disease. Everything. Think about how many different things you touch on a normal day. Thousands.

When I’m in line and four or five people waste my time paying with plastic .

When it’s my turn looking dead serious I ask “ do you guys still take cash “?

You get some odd looks sometime . Lol

No.
Cash is expensive to produce, transport and maintain.
Cards on the other hand make somebody money every time they are used.

They will finally eliminate cash under the guise of ending crime like child trafficking and drug sales.

Not a chance. Cash is big business, the companies that make and transport it have a lot of lobbying power. They will keep cash alive because they like their place on the gravy train.

One of the main reasons that small change like pennies still exist even though they cost more than their face value. Industry lobbying.

It would also cist too much to convert all of those cash vending machines and arcade cabinets.

Nov to mention all of those slot machines in Vegas.
