    R.A.K. at the Islip R&P Range

    (Random Act of Kindness)
    Went to the Islip Range, arrive just after 12:35. Walk into the trailer to pay up. Me and the woman running the desk are chit chatting and getting me squared away when I pull out my debit card and I get the "ooooh" face I know that accompanies "we don't take those".

    I get direct deposit from my job, the gas station by me charges the same price for cash and debit. I have almost no need to carry cash on me, ever, anymore. This being one of those times I have $2 on me and preparing to leave as I'm SOL as theyre closing at 2, so by the time I ATM and come back I'll be lucky to get 1 session in. Day over, gonna have to make the Brookhaven trek on a Holiday weekend if I want to shoot - yuck.

    Lady must sense how dumb I feel, and says "what do you got on you?" I reply, showing her the inside of my bill fold. Racks up $2 on the register and says "Happy Memorial Day". I dont recall her name, but whoever you are, you made the day for me. And for that I thank you.

    My business has to pay a higher % (to the bank) when we take debt cards. More than on credit cards.

      My cousin does that - no cash, just a debit card. If he goes to 7-11 to get a cup of coffee - debit card. But of course, there's times when you actually need cash and he always checks his pockets like there's miraculously going to be cash there. Drives me nuts. I have to have a decent amount of cash on me at all times, even though I also use my debit card most of the time.

      Nice to read about good things happening.

        Great story but cash is king.

          I almost never carry cash either, it's a great way to stop impulse buying. For instance the ice cream man does not take debit cards.

            I also only keep a small amount (20-50) in my checking. So any expensive purchases require me to transfer money from my savings. One extra step that allows me to think about what I'm buying while I watch howmuch money will be leaving.

              The ice cream man is one of the most important reasons I carry cash!
