One of the things that drives me crazy is folks, primarily drawn from Generation Y, who use debit cards for EVERYTHING. Most mornings I stop at one of the Circle K's and get coffee. I can't count the number of times that somebody is using a card for a soda, or pastries, or a pack of cigarettes, even with a line of folks. I'm as big a fan of plastic and 1% cash back as anybody, but I draw the line at a dollar or two, particularly at a convenience store.

Sorry dude, banks and cash are out. I carry between $5-40, and if I don't have to use it, I don't. Too much of a pain to go get more. Plus, I never remember when I'm at the grocery store.

Although I don't think I'm generation X or Y. I'm just lazy.
