My father, being from a fading generation, always hated plastic money. Today he still has a roll of 50 euro bills in his pocket, which he gets at his good old bank. One day a new guy asked him for his ID, my dad went berserk and demanded to see the bank manager.
Now he can walk in again and just ask for a 1000 in cash.
My dad is really cool. I inherited this trait from him.
