If I didn't have a credit card I guess I'd use a debit card or go to the bank to take out cash. It would be more of a hassle, but those are the alternatives. It's true I do have to pay my bill every month - takes about 5 minutes to login to the website, review the month's purchases, and click "pay bill". I could have it automatically pay (sort of like a debit card), but I like to see what I spent money on the most over the month. Not really a cost.

I also get 1-3% cash back so the higher prices that everyone pays get to me in the form of a check every few months.

Newer fridges are much more energy-efficient and cheaper compared to those old models. If you bought an expensive one marked as reliable instead of the cheapest one out there then it would last more than 5 years. The stuff that wasn't as over engineered from the past hasn't survived so we only see the stuff that was.

And smartphones are worse, some giving you the date and time that the phone call was made before playing the message.

That's not something specific to smartphones - that's something that comes from phone companies and voice mail (compared to answering machines of the past) in general. My smartphone has a voice mail app now that lets me just select the message and click "play" - a large improvement.

If they were terrorists, the TSA probably should have done something like stopped them from getting on the airplane and calling law enforcement. It's somewhat ridiculous to think that there are potential terrorists getting on planes and all we're doing about them is throwing their bombs in the trash before the board.
