Unclehate has a long-documented obsession with immigrants sending money home to their families and draining the country of cashflow, apparently, as I recall, because a bloke in a pub once allegedly told him they were all at it. Somewhat ironic for someone who would whine like a stuck pig about Big Brother if he was ever told he couldn't do as he pleases with his wages, but there you go.

I usually carry cash and card, and my Apple Watch & I phone to back up the watch in case it runs out of charge. But I carry a back up battery pack and a lead, for both devices (my battery pack has two ports so I can charge both devices at the same time). But just in case I do carry another lead and plug, just in case the battery pack should need a charge.

However, I do also have a camel and a couple of goats with me, just in case I have to barter. Though I’m finding that I often bring a barrow of carrots, as more and more people are turning vegan and won’t accept the goats, and trying to get change for a camel is difficult sometimes.

Maybe se22cat's response was just a mirage.

Camels and goats will come in great following Brexit to trade with our new partners. I'm stocking up on fags which I expect will be a pretty stable currency.

To return to the subject, I do look at my statements and they have a long list of small payments. I therefore try to continue to use cash just because this is an annoyance. 9/10 bar staff just offer me the card machine.

There's a bigger issue in that 9/10 bar staff can neither add up and many don't necessarily key in the right prices.
With cash at least I can know how much - as often I'm not told. But when I know it is an expensive place I just go with the card in any case as it doesn't seem to hurt as much. I'm wondering, seriously, whether pubs and bars have been able to put prices up simply as so few people seem to know the cost of a round or perhaps don't care, some colleagues of the younger persuasion are shocked that I question the price, and from time to time I am right.

I go on holiday abroad with heaps of cash as generally the rates up in Victoria Street are so much better than any other way of changing money - we all of course got Flex accounts a few years ago when this gave you small commission on holes in the wall, which was suddenly dropped after we had all switched. The Flex plus or whatever it is called just abouts makes sense with the free breakdown and travel insurance, and gives this benefit.

Apols for meandering.

Is there a British version of Camel?

We’ll probably have to substitute with Oxen or Cows

So boring this Brexit thing, takes away the exoticness of being an outward looking country.

That said, I look forward to getting some chicken as ‘loose change’

Im all for Pink Unicorns 🦄 as tradings currency. I mean if people can keep millions in crypto currency in a cold wallet and a laptop, why not have a four legged fantasy pony as a trading vehicle for stuff.

Ahh Haa haaa ahhhhh Haa ha

Oh god, I’ve gone #BrexitBonkers na na na na na.

But that's terribly cynical smiling smiley
