Why there's no wrong way to pay

You pitch up at your local coffee cart with an apologetic expression, wondering if you’ll be able to get your caffeine fix that morning. But here’s the thing – it’s actually fine to be that person.

Luckily, there’s the humble newsagency and bookshop – and these local heroes won’t turn you away if you’re paying on card, no matter how small the purchase.
