Something I haven’t read much if anything about as a side-effect of COVID-19 is the death of cash as a way of paying for things.
I have $60 in my wallet that’s been there since, what, Christmas?
For many years I kept cash in my wallet because there were a handful of places that didn’t have payment machines: for the longest time Tai Chi Gardens was cash only, as was the sushi place Monsoon. And the Charlottetown Farmers’ Market was always generally a cash-only marketplace, although a couple of vendors allowed you to pay with square.
Today? Nothing. There’s absolutely no need to keep cash in my wallet at all.
We achieved a cashless society without even noticing.
