    Don't tell anyone you are getting a childminder for 200 quid a week FGS. Where is this person, can they double up. But I always thought they had a legitimate arrangement tax wise or something. Anyway.

    Cash will always be there though, I think. Might be more difficult to get access to it. But it is MINE and just because it's in a bank doesn't mean I can't grab it when I want to.

    Anyway. Robots next.

    I was not suggesting that you didn't either.

    Just goes to show how expensive child care can be. It should be free or subsidised, in order to build up the economy. Or something.

    Problem is, one could do that with creche use through vouchers, but for randomers doing it as a nixer in your home?

    I don't know what is best. Granny did it here for a long time and was paid cash in hand and the kids loved it. I'd say the kids were the boss! but anyway. That was a long time ago now.

    Not sure if Granny survived but she looks ok now.

    The younger generation in particular just see card payments as 'normal' and not a novelty

    Outdoor ATMs could well end up on the Junkyard of History sooner than we think....

    Banks will still probably have them inside if you like really have to use one

    - during opening hours of course....
    I find all this funny in a dark sort of way. The logic of capitalism we are told is that businesses respond to the needs of customers, but with banks this is the opposite we are being driven to solutions which most people don't prefer.

    I am getting quite annoyied with insurers trying to drive customers online, I prefer to deal with people on the phone when making decisions like that.

    Have had a least 3 occasions in the last 12 months that I was unable to use my debit/credit card in a Aldi, had to walk around the corner to an Atm.....Queue of trolleys when i got back, central payments issue.

    Only happened last friday, with AIB cards.

    No ATM'S and we will all require more cash and not less in event of emergency !!!!
