some shops give a discount to those paying in cash
Well isnt that basically the same as when gas stations give you a semi lower cost on gas if you pay with cash.
Yes. Probably to stop people from queuing outside the door for hours on end to get the better seats (or to sell a place in the queue to people who want to pay for better seats)
Still think that's dumb personally I mean, i'm fine with the way we do it here first come first serve.
Also, people using credit cards tend to buy 20% more
oooo yeah can totally understand this, I mean its just a swipe you don't actually see your money coming out of your hand. Why the U.S has such problems with credit card debt.
There are also on the spot fines for what you would term jaywalking
What seriously, I mean I guess I can understand that, but here you cross where ever you want. hopefully just not right in front of a car lol. What's the fine on that??
