For me at least a wallet is a necessity. I have various forms of ID and other cards that I need for my job. Furthermore why should payment by phone replace a credit card when it is just as convenient in my opinion? Also let’s not forget the security issues that paying with a phone brings with it. Another thing too is that you can lose a phone as well, so to me it seems more like a preference than something that will make the wallet go away.

I had a similar experience at my last job a few years back. When I left they called me the next day asking me if I would come back and they were very surprised I even quit. Of course I didn't go back since where I work pays more and is a pretty good place to work.

Even though I do not like Windows I never thought that it could ever really die. However with the absolute idiotic things that Microsoft has been doing with their OS lately I think that it might actually be possible. I cannot say how or this would happen, but I think it will be inevitable (I could be wrong here). I for one can’t stand the direction that they are taking. The only reason I still use Windows is for gaming. Maybe I should bite the bullet and only buy games that run on Linux from now on.

After any salary raise, you will have less money at the end of the month than you did before.
