What was Once Common is Now the Oddity

Today while at the dentist, I purchased some specialty, highly fluoridated toothpaste, and upon leaving, I paid the bill with cash that I'd earned from my middleman role in procuring items from Amazon or i think it's cool paying cash for things, especially knowing that I made surfeit profit by procuring novel items for my housemates that otherwise would have been out of their reach. It brings me joy to 'bend' the rules, even though everyone knows what I do, it's the worst kept secret in the house that I don't care--I am Dutch, I can get away with things BECAUSE I'm open about them. I am the quintessential Dutch capitalist, will get anyone anything, for a nominal fee.   Now I'm cycling my fiat cash back into the economy...

Also for lunch, I bought my aunt and myself each a bean and cheese burrito from the local Federico's Mexican fast food restaurant. I had ample cash for the food. It'll now cycle through the local economy also...

With people using debit and credit for even the smallest transactions, seems now that cash is scarce. I like it because there is no holding fee.  I cannot in good conscience countenance paying other people for the grace of using my own money, then again, Dutchmen are notoriously frugal. Guess the nut doesn't fall too far from the tree, even after several generations away from the fatherland.
