well shit I mean if you can't afford that lifestyle of being a couple on a night out, then isn't that problem on you ? like I think I'd like to eat out everyday too but I don't cause I'm a bum and I don't wanna be like that couple lol trying to haggle the bill down.

if it bothers you...why dont you just go to a restaurant that will accept debit

if someone doesn't pay for their meal the restaurant can't do shit. the reason you order something is under the assumption theyll pay it in full.

I live in a town were every restaurant takes debit and credit. People that don't live in Richmond won't know that restaurants only take cash.

this is just odd as i know that most cash only places in richmond are cheap (like $5 for fried rice) so i dun see the point in being so "cheap" about this, plus i heard these places take cash only cuz if they add everything up they might not make a profit (if u include rent in food courts) if they except cards as (someone told me this one time)

But other than that I have seen every car on display in DTP just by cruising about in Richmond, thank you very much for collecting them together and get someone to sing a cover for "fuck you".

OH FUCK YOU OH OH OOOOH~

I don't see how a business owner trying to maximize his profits is relevant to being a cheap ass. And as some have pointed out, if he's selling cheap food at around $3-$5, it only makes good business sense to do it.

The fee is less than 25 cents for debit. These guys do it for 6 cents.

Its not the fact that its only a dollar its the principle that matters, and its funny how they said oh its just a dollar short yet they the ones that won't go to the ATM because of 1.50?! .
Agreed. These people were just fucking idiots

Most likely they are taking cash not only to be cheap, yet to be tax frauds. Restaurants are notorious for being tax frauds as they can hide a lot of cash transactions.

There is a sign that says Cash Only. I've personally dined there multiple times - and there's been once or twice where I've forgotten to take out cash and got dinged at the ATM at TD. Boo friggin hoo.

The debit fee is actually more than a Credit Card fee - but with Credit Cards - you have the risk of chargebacks, which will amount to a lot more than debit fees each month.


btw - there's an extremely cute Japanese girl that works there. True story.
