... Heaven knows what their actual motivations are.
Really? They just want to yell at some helpless clerk that can't yell back. It doesn't matter the reason. They want to get their jollies.

What IA said.

Especially when it could be pointed out 'The company is not refusing cash. They're just asking you to use it at specific tills.'

Had another one today, through my line (lucky me).

Got the usual rant about how it's "not fair" that we have only one line for cash and then he brought up something new ... it's particularly "not fair" when people are allowed into this line who are *GASP* paying with plastic!

SC: "THE WOMAN AHEAD OF ME, SHE WAS PAYING WITH HER DEBIT CARD! I'M PAYING CASH! WHY IS SHE ALLOWED TO PAY WITH DEBIT?! WHAARRRRRGARBLE!!"

Me:

Okay, I didn't -- at least not in front of him. He told me I should tell the manager this isn't fair and I promised to pass the message along. (I wasn't going to actually put out a call for anybody in authority for this level of bullshit.) And off he stomped.

I looked at the next customer in line, who appeared to be trying not to laugh.

Me: "So, sir, are you paying cash or do I have to have you dragged out of my line?"

Customer: "I'm paying cash."

Me: "Thank heavens for that!"

At the end of my shift, I walked up to the shift supervisor and told him about the complaint (talk about First World problems ...) and that I'd promise to pass it along, so he could now consider it passed.

Shift Supervisor:

Actually, according to the letter of the law in USA and Canada. Itís illegal to deny *payment* not cash. So you can legally deny them the ďrightĒ to pay with cash but you cannot refuse payment altogether. So long as you are providing some means to pay then it is perfectly legal even if that means is the most backward should be left in the past cheque. And yes, I have been to law school but had to dropout due to the ridiculous costs of education here.

I'm in my 40's and I use cash a lot. I don't have a debit card so I *gasp* write a check at the bank every couple of weeks to get cash. I have credit cards but no debit card. I'm perfectly happy that way.
