I rarely pay cash. I always use my credit card(s). We accumulate points and have managed to go to Greece, to Hawaii (twice) and Vegas on points, so it's all good. We also have used our points for car rentals. Yes there are fees attached to those cards, but I think, in the end, what we've used them for was worth the $200/year.
Yesterday, while meeting a client, he mentioned that he had fired one of his waitress. She was stealing from him and even if he'd caught her before and had been warned, she did it again. This past weekend, he realised his cash was short $400. When he asked her about it, she pulled out $200 from her bra. When he insisted on the issue that she was still short, she excused herself, walked away and came back with another $200, all crumpled up and humid. He then fired her.
Imagine my surprise, and smile, when I saw this today on Bacefook!

I guess she's not the only one who uses that area as a wallet!
