Only Cash over here in my part of the country

Locked

#1 by valerie » Sat Dec 26, 2020 12:12

Due to the Nashville TN blast, only cash is accepted.

We were at Walmart today and they can take cash only. All the ATM's are out too.

Another good reason why cash should not go extinct and why people should always keep some
cash on reserve.

My sister did not have cash on her so I paid for her items at Walmart since I had cash.

It's really crazy with cars lined up at bank ATM's and various ATM's but all are either out of cash
or not working.

The explosion hit the main AT&T headquarters in Nashville.

Sadly cash will be very soon a history , maybe in few years only , So many shops do not accept cash now here and nothing can stop that .

Another deadly blow for many elderly , they kill us with new technologies , many can not use it but nobody care

I call it another shit from Bill

When it gets right down to the nitty gritty, I believe for the most part, people were
far better off before computers and that goes for mobile phones too.

Technology was suppose to make life easier. But I can tell you if anything is a hoax,
that is. Life was far easier before computers.

People are getting fat, sitting at computers. This leads to all kinds of diseases. This leads to high insurance costs.

People are not safer in any way at all. Crime rises no matter what. Prisons and jails are more crowded than ever.

If something goes haywire, it's not just paper in one office, it's an entire network and perhaps even global!

This is why I stress to people, always always always keep some cash on hand for emergencies.
You never know what something is going to happen.

How long it is going to take for them to fix all the wiring for this, I don't know. It does not bother me but
I am sure it is bothering a lot of people. Obviously it is due to the car line ups at banks and ATM's and
those aren't even working! It's all down!

Problem is, it's weird asking people to carry cash when it was the opposite not long ago, cash is getting scarce mainly due to the mobile phone craze and more and more self service replacing cashiers in stores. Nowadays you can load a payment method inside your mobile phone. Many places here have already banned cash, however it is tricky because cash is legal tender, but some stores here still get away with refusing it.

Cash will never quit ego extinct, but more and more establishment will not accept it. Even casinos now use electronic payments - you can put your bank card or CC directly in a slot machine and slots are all virtually coinless, so cash is getting more and more rare, even in the organised crime industry, where crypto is used more than cash :D

This is the new reality the world has to face, the constant threat of radicalism - that's why the world needs more Trumps, only problem here is that some LOCALS are becoming radicalised as well, is this an inside incident, it could very well be, this is what you get in countries that have opened their doors wide open for years to just about ANYBODY and has done NOTHING to monitor online recruitment and radical movements.

Another problem, how the hell after 9/11, the US is not ready against any future attacks, how come there are no contingency plans in place ? Are they all dependent on technology ? if that goes down, what else, there has to be back up plans. If you run a company with important data or critical processes, you make sure you have a back -up plan and contingency, when you need it the most. It's easy to say people should have cash on them at all times, but it is not always the case, especially when people have gotten used to the convenience and speed of cashless and contactless payments.

Yeah, it's easy for me to say people should keep cash on hand for emergencies.
Why wouldn't it be easy for me to say that?

It's not like I am forcing them to. :lol:

I have just given a perfect real life example as to why it might be wise for them to do so.

My sister still uses checks a lot. I guess many people still do. I don't. I probably wrote
no more than 5 or 10 checks, this entire year. Maybe less than that.

I guess if any company is losing business in the USA, it is the paper check business.

These days, people are better off digging a hole in the ground, placing their money in a
steal box, and burying it.

Actually it's great advice to keep cash on hand, it's legal tender, and it does not take much to take an entire infrastructure down where processing of electronic payments would be interrupted. However, the problem is, especially during this pandemic, some businesses are refusing cash.

EXACTLY - and you might even earn more interest that way :lol: Wait until they eventually drive interest rates into the negative territory - I mean they said they won't but you never know, they once also said they will never lower rates to 0%, well now it is exactly that, a big fat 0. There will be a day where you will have to pay the bank to save your money, and not the other way around - interest rates are down to 0, but banks didn't stop charging the big fees though........

So how are people making money then ? Investments - If you have lots of money you can afford to lose and know-how, you can make quick money during this pandemic or you could gamble on a 2021 growth, OR if you are not afraid of high risk and HIGH volatility, Cryptocurrency :mrgreen: If you are not afraid of potential 20%-30% losses.
I already learned my lesson many years ago - no more :D I've always held money in high yield savings account, so many years ago it was about 4%, now..........it's 0.04% how pathetic. and only a year ago it was 1.3%, with no source of income and nothing, the 0% interest rates is more appealing than the high risk. Expect near 0% interest for the years to come, at least 3 more years, and if they bring interest rates into the negatives, then we all better start digging those holes in the ground :lol:

Oh and I missed that one too :lol: You really don't need to dig a hole in the ground though, you could use the old fashioned method, the shoe box and at the top of a closet or under the bed or you can put them in ziplocks and stashed under the mattress :mrgreen:

You know this reminds me of my gullible years, I used to read through magazines and tabloids and the classified ads section, there were always those ads for miracle gadgets, crystals that attract good luck, crystal cross you wear and it attracts good luck, lucky truffles, and all that crap, there was this one relic in a 1 page ad, it claimed that if you put in the same room as a glass jar, the next day, it would be filled with money, even had a money back iron clad guarantee :mrgreen: I never bought it, but I did end up buying the crystal cross of good luck, unfortunately, nothing changed for me, I bought a scratch and win the same day and won a free ticket, which was a loser :P For sure there are still products out there claiming that you put money in a box or jar and come back some days / weeks later and find money than you had placed there. There are always gullible people born every minute, I am glad that I snapped out of that phase - I got scammed many times from those products to work at home schemes, etc. and I was gullible enough to believe in the tooth fairy.

People don't like to think about their own demise which actually happens very quickly.
Life is short and extremely short for many people.

I think I told this before here, some years ago.

There was sort of a hermit that lived up in the Tennessee mountains. He lived in a
little two room shack of a cabin. He owned an old truck and would go into town about
once every month or two for supplies such as food. He lived to be very old, on up in
his 90's. He wasn't a church goer and he really didn't have friends but as the towns
people said, a nice enough fellow but kept to himself.

I don't remember now if he had electricity or not in his cabin and I don't think he did.
He did have an old wood stove that he used for heat and cooking.

After he died, some people went into his cabin to evaluate I guess. He didn't have
relatives so whatever he owned would go to the city. What they found was very
amazing.

His cabin walls was lined with money. He used it as insulation. It was every where.
In his wood stove, they found ashes that they said was burnt up cash. They said he
probably used the cash to start the kindling.

I don't remember the exact amount they pulled from the walls but it was a large
sum like half a million dollars. It also turns out he was some kind of special forces
World War Vet. He was of high intellect.

They didn't find much in his cabin other than a bible, the stove, the bed, an old
photo album, food supplies and not much else.

People were so amazed at that. He could have lived in a nice house, had a nice
vehicle, etc.

I believe he was certainly of high intellect. For him, the money he received, did not
mean a whole lot to him. He knew life was brief on this planet. He had everything
he needed and I guess if he ever really did need something, he had the money for it.

People in general, go about their life as if they are going to live forever. When it gets
right down to it, none of us need any more than he did.
