A $4.50 fee per transaction? That’s usury.
“I just paid in cash for a thing and the lady told me that women do this all the time — they pay cash, or half in cash, so that their husbands/partners don’t see the full amount.”
Every time I mention that I love the scent of cash, someone points out how filthy money is. Can’t argue with that—whatever passes through hundreds of hands is dirty. I laugh and say, “Mmm, cocaine residue!”
