63. My father used to own a laundrymat
I went to the A&P across the street almost everyday to buy food with quarters. I avoided spending more than a few dollars at a time to avoid embarrassment, but it never occured to me that someday a store would not accept legal tender. Today, I see people buying a single bottle of water and a bag of chips with a credit card. Maybe it's because of my advanced age, but I can't see that as normal. If the nature of money is going to evolve, fine, but we can't have this process prevent people from buying food.
