Tanita Tikaram is from Basingstoke.
Ah, I see what my brain did there.Tanita Tikaram is from Basingstoke.
Yep, that'll do. Though my thorough research suggests that Sharon Davies, David Wilkie and Duncan Goodhew are Bracknellers.
In that case... I'm rich!
I knew there were more!Slot machines. Giving money to my family (or receiving it). Cheques are used a lot too.
Giving money to homeless people.
But they put the gloves on at the start of the shift and then take them off at the end. This is literally no different, to the customer at least, as them not wearing gloves. And from the staff point of view I bet they take them off just like normal gloves thus handling all the accumulated crud over the day.The cashiers here are wearing gloves now. However while the shopping items will be touched by both cashier and customer, the cash might well be handed over by one customer and then later be handed over to a new customer.
It's a deliberate and concerted effort to stop us using cash.Went to our usual shopping centre today and went to take out money from the atm.
In the last couple of days they have taken out all the bank ones and replaced them with those ones where they charge you $2.50 for using them.
Guess I will have to do a cashout in the supermarket although that is limited, or trek to the outside at the other end and go into the bank ones there.
I don't necessarily see a hidden agenda. In a way, the move to a cashless system is probably inevitable, though I think we're some way off yet.Why have people never worried, in the past, about catching flu from handling money? It's suddenly just a problem now, which, if I put on my
conspiracy beret*, seems to me to be an awful lot like a hidden agenda. (Or perhaps not so hidden!)
The hidden agenda is, in future, they can introduce a small charge every time you use your card. If they can charge for atm withdrawls, I can see things heading this way.I don't necessarily see a hidden agenda.

The anti-cash feeling in the Covid months has probably been as much about reassuring people as it has about actually protecting them. All the points about cashiers handling groceries etc are good ones.
I have to say, based on my own experience, that shops seem a lot happier accepting cash in the last couple of months. I think we've all realised that there are far higher-risk activities than passing a bit of paper or metal from one person to another.
If they do that then maybe the Government won't have go on a tax spree to cover the 2 Trillion dept because of pandemic ?The hidden agenda is, in future, they can introduce a small charge every time you use your card. If they can charge for atm withdrawls, I can see things heading this way.
