Taxi Wallets FOREVER! September 09 2014
So we gathered together in our office today to watch Apple present their next new world-changing tech (yes, love the watch, WANT the watch!)
But . . .
Here's some reasons our team came up with for why wallets (especially, ahem, TAXI WALLETS) are not going away!
First, we like to shop at old-fashioned, mom-and-pop, brick-and-mortar stores, and guess what — they prefer cash! Especially for items under $10 or $20 (have you tried to buy a pack of gum at a corner store lately?)
Then there are ID cards and membership cards and transit cards and business cards and library cards and insurance cards and receipts from those old-fashioned, brick-and-mortar stores. We like to keep all those in our wallets. Yes, we always say we like to travel light, but most of these cards aren't going away any time soon.
Then there are coins! Taxi Wallets carry coins! Most parking meters still take them (unless you are unfortunate enough to live where parking fees practically require a second mortgage . . .) And laundromats! You still need coins for laundromats!
A spare check? Okay, that's getting REALLY old-fashioned, but some of us still need them once in awhile.
Oh, and by the way? It's cool to wear a watch again, Apple? We think wallets MIGHT go away about the time your watch is no longer cool, and cool means getting Borg-like implants.
At that point we'll gladly put our Taxi Wallets in the museum . . . and join them there ourselves!
