The kid wanted to drive and purchase a new pair of rugged cargo pants. So we went to the Duluth Trading Co. in Jantzen Beach.
The orientation of the store was to big men, so I was happily surprised to find 28 inch waist, 32 inch inseam pants for the skinny kid. He now has two pairs of pants with so many pockets that he will not need a backpack. Ever.
An older gentleman was checking out ahead of us with a big order of several hundred dollars. He took out bills and paid in cash, finding the coins for exact change as well.
Ten years ago, that might have been me purchasing a small item. I can’t remember the last time I paid for something in cash – certainly not an order worth a significant amount of money.
