Hassels of using cash

http://finance.yahoo.com/news/heres-...155500789.html

Guy tries to pay off his student loans in cash.....

"I just plopped the bag down (on the counter)," he said. "They also didn't know how to handle it. At first the manager didn't want to accept the money."

While Kenjeev waited, calls to higher-ups were made, his RBC withdrawal slip was reviewed, and tellers went to work counting the bills by hand.

"I was pretty naive," Kenjeev admitted. "I didn't really realize how much of a hassle I'd cause for everybody. You just look at things and you figure cash is simpler than anything else."

Living "cash only" does have its challenges. Like the time I bought a car and they didn't know what to do. Or staying at a motel and the seeing the girl figure out what to do when they don't have a credit card to 'hold'. Even paying utility bills and taxes can be a bit of a challenge.
Interesting how they have legal tender become 'illegal' in practical terms. I want to use the coin of the realm but the realm most often won't let me.
