Confession time: for years I was the annoying person laughing at all the people still clinging to cash to conduct their daily transactions. I just couldn’t wrap my head around it. Why handle a bunch of weird, germ-infested pieces of green paper when you could much more easily just swipe a piece of plastic? Why deal with coins that merely jingle around in your pocket and inevitably fall between the couch cushions or under your driver’s seat? Who in their right mind would subject themselves to this unnecessary daily hassle?
