    Soon...

    It almost already is (or can be)


    When traveling to Texas I experienced my first no attendent gas station. No body to turn the pumps on etc.. all you did was just slip in your credit card and went on your way. Now when I goto the movie rental store and hand them my check card I don't even have to sign a reciept and when I order pizza online I can include a tip on the card.

    The next thing to come: cashless vending machines... insert your card and go!

      You really had never used a self serve gas pump? Sorry, but that is sweet. There is only one gas station in my home town that is still a full serve station. I learned how to put gasoline in my car many years ago........not much fun if you are dressed up and all...but a woman has got to do what she has to do.

      I have been to a cashless video arcade...buy a card and play until its all gone. you can use cash, but the card is faster. Tokens and quarters can be a pain.

        LOL. Wow.

        BTW, they do have cashless vending machines. At least they did when I went to college. Slid in your dining card, and out pops the food. I'm sure they have some that take other prepaid cards or debit cards, too.

          I usually carry a tenner in my wallet, it will there for weeks. I do all of my transactions with my debit card, hell mcdonalds, wendys, and burger king takes debit cards.

            The newest thing is where you stick your thumb into a little reader and it takes the money from your account, for whatever youre buying. Strange...but cool...

            I never use a debit card because i heard that sometimes you get charged for using it, i dont know. I do charge on a credit card that gets flyer miles for my sister, then i pay my portion of the bill every month. They use this card for EVERYTHING, and fly many places for free.

            We dont have any cash-less gas stations here in Jersey, because its still illegal to pump your own gas, which i love. And the gas is still cheaper than other states in the area.

              We will soon have cell phones functioning as wallets. We will spend money that exists on those or maybe an alternative medium.

You honor them by holding them in memory and, in law enforcement, proceeding in vigilant, ethical police work. You honor this country or deceased soldiers or whatever you're honoring when you salute a flag by thinking, feeling, and continuing a life of freedom.
