About 2 months ago, Jonathan and I went to the cash only envelope system, a la Dave Ramsey. We each have our own envelope, one for groceries, one for dates, etc. It has worked very well for us so far. But that is not the point of this post.
This has been the first season of my life in a very long time when I have had cash on me at all times. Before this, I was 100% the "I-don't-have-any-cash-on-me" person (and it was true). I've used a credit card for $1.19 pack of gum before. It was that bad.
Thus, using cash as a sole form of currency has brought to my attention a new pet peeve that I hopefully have not habitually committed in my years of retail.
Does it bother you when cashiers place in your palm (from the bottom up):
Because it gets on my last nerve. How can I possibly allocate each of those three things to the proper category of my wallet or purse in a semi-fluid or timely manner when they're placed in my hand this way? Especially if there's a line? I try to have the coin purse section unzipped and ready, but it's often just too cumbersome to try to slide in the dollar bills AND get the receipt in the bag, or at least out of my clammy hand, before the person behind me is ready to pay. It's just too much pressure! Ask me if I want my receipt in the bag first or something. And, it seems to be a new trend to be smug about it if you're able to count out the right change and get the receipt in one go-round. No ma'am.
You know what, come to think of it, I always give change first and then the receipt.
Does this bug anyone else? And a ba humbug to you too.
