    Default Are these ppl for real?

    I see it alot.They stand in a q at a shop.Have their items.The cashier scans the items and out comes a credit card.Serously a fkn credit card for a say a loaf of bread and a choc bar or similar.These ppl should get their heads examined although i dont think a scan would show up much in the way of a meaninful cells.There isnt anything wrong with ppl using credit cards (i wouldnt have one in my way) but at a small store for a few euros of items?

    plz ffs,
    Westside.

    Default Some shops have a minimum spend to use a credit card.......

    Maybe these people you saw were using a lazer or debit card............

    Its true what Westside says I've seen it alrite a few times 2weeks ago a guy in the que in the restaurant directly in front of me wanted to pay for 2 teas & 2 scones 8.40 with his credit card he got in a huff left his items there had to go downstairs(shaking his head) to get money from the ATM Machine to pay for them life is so hard for some people...

    Hi all

    just registered tonight decided to take the plunge
    anyways I dont allow people to use cards in my shop unless there amount is over 20 euro.
    it actually drives me mental when they try and pay for small things with their card when the atm machine is right outside our front door!!!!!!!!! i just dont get their way of thinking

    There's a reason for all these credit cards, it's how some people live and survive. On credit.......

    Sorry lads but I have to disagree, I use my debit card for everything (except escorts but if i could I'd use one of those prepay cards), pisses me off when a shop or cafe doesn't accept them (there are a few), means I have to locate the nearest ATM which is always out of order in either the freezing cold or pissing rain.

    I never used to be like this but if I have cash on me I tend to waste it by buying something stupid or other but for some phsycological reason I don't have that prtoblem when I just carry my debit card.
