I'm in the same exact boat...across the board. Debit card for everything, I carry very little cash except my "Emergency" $100 bill and usually about $50 in random cash just in case I run into a place like the OP.I was fine with your post until you called people stupid for buying a coffee and donut using a CC.
There is no need to insult people based on how they choose to pay.
I pay for everything with a CC. From something that costs $1 to a $5K mountain bike. I would post a screenshot of my CC statement, but it's like 300 small transactions and that might give someone an aneurism.
I do it out of convenience. I also get cash back with one card and get money to spend at Cabelas and BassPro with the other. I have $600 accumulated to spend at Cabelas.
I have carried cash with me, and it is a huge PITA for me. When I travel to LATAM I carry cash, and it s*cks. In Europe, I carry cash and end with pockets full of Euro coins heavy AF. With the prices here, I would blow through $100 in 1 hour. Carrying a stack of $100 bills all the time in my pocket is a PITA.
I do keep $60 in my car. And I pay cash to my barber.
I hate cash in Europe with all the freaking coins!
