"My milkman, window cleaner and gardener willingly accept cheques so there are a lot of small businesses that do. On saying that .. I pay the milkman and gardener online and the window cleaner in cash
Do milkmen still exist? I know one who was made redundant about 3 years ago. A gardener and a window cleaner? How nouveau riche! we vieux pauvre have to do these things ourselves.
Just found my cheque book. Last cheque I wrote was for council tax at the beginning of the year. I now pay that online as well.
Yes my milkman does lol. I try to support small local businesses and as ‘_t one fell swoop’ says it’s nice to have real bottles delivered to the doorstep. As for the other maintenance help I get .. I’m too old to clamber up ladders to attend windows or hedges .. and not one of these guys is horny or up for it haha.
I’m getting used to the demise of cheques and just getting used to electronic contactless purchases .. I’m becoming a modern man .. I might even stop wearing my flares
