To the editor:
I don’t use credit cards.
The other day I went to a local store to buy a garbage can for my plastic recycling.
I saw a tractor, a lawn mower that turns on a dime, priced at $1,299. I asked if that was a true price and the lady called to check and said it was.
I told her I would come back with cash. She said I could only do it with a card. I said no, I deal with cash.
When I returned, they wouldn’t take my check, either.
I’m 76. I’m not going to change my ways now.
They should be taking cash, we are America still—our money says “legal tender for all debts, public and private.”
We shouldn’t let them get away with this.
