What happened to "If you can't say something nice?"

I go to get lunch in my building, but I'm nauseated and having a hot flash.  I decided to get a slice of pound cake from Starbucks because I don't think I can stomach any real food.  I go to pay the cashier and he doesn't have change.  He asks if I have a card, but I didn't. So has to go in the back to get change. While we are waiting, the guy behind me in line, very loudly starts going into a long, drawn out diatribe about how petty cash is useless now, etc., etc. and no one uses cash--basically condemning me for using cash and not a bank card. I don't even remember everything he said but it was very rude and it made me feel like a fool. 

And I mean, seriously? Whose business is it if I use cash instead of a card?  Why the need to comment?  Truth be told, I left my wallet at home today, but I was not going to tell him that.  The fact of the matter is that it is none of his darn business and if he is disgruntled at anyone because he had to wait an additional 30 seconds then it should be Starbucks for not keeping any money in their register.  I wish I could have come up with a swift comeback, but I was just trying to get out of there without throwing up.   Vent over.

    It stinks that people are so rude.  You have no reason to feel a fool.  And you're right, Starbucks should have cash on them.  Next time you should just throw up on the guy. Wink

    I'm pretty sure I would have said something really rude to that guy.  It usually takes a lot to set off my temper, but my hormones have given me a really short fuse lately.

    What an @ss! That would have pissed me off so much and I totally would have spent the entire wait for change thinking up a snarky comment to him.

    That's rediculous. He should just get over it..cash is still an excepted form of payment so he should be mad that Starbucks didn't stock their register not that you wanted to pay in cash.

    I wish I could have thought of some snarky response. I suppose there are alot of people in this world who have opinions and feel the need to share them, but I've never had anyone go off on me because they were anti-cash!

    Exactly this. I'm kinda John Wayne-ish lately so that d-bag would have gotten put in his place, especially for whining about something so stupid.

    Yeah - I probably would've snapped back at him. "If you have an issue with me using cash, then why don't you use your precious plastic card and pay for my food?"

    I very much dislike people like that. Ugh.
