    I just got back from HomeDepot and an asshole writing a check backed up the line for 10 minutes. He had to write 3 checks because he messed up the date on one and the amount on the other. WTF..


    Who write checks and why do they think they're secure!!! They have your account number, address on them!!!

    I'm assuming this was an old dude, I usually can't help cutting them some slack.

    But there is a time limit on that.

    Usually it's older women that wait until the entire order has been scanned, then pull out the checkbook from their purse and start this whole ordeal of a ritual to produce the check.

    Seriously, I don't understand this. I've also noticed women of all ages stand in line for a food order then get to the front and only then start deciding what they want to order

    Double L writes checks with the specific intention of pissing people off so badly that it ruins their whole day and they rush home to make a thread about it.

    To pay certain bills, yes. It is a hassle getting a stamp and going to a mailbox. I probably should stop.

    Holy Christ. I used one check between May 2015 and April 2016 and it was for my car excise tax. Last one before that? April 2015. Before that April 2014.

    Checks suck. Who the fuck uses that shit anymore?

    Even in the drive-thru. I have to quiz my wife like a district attorney before we pull up to the ordering board because she hasn't given it a thought before then. Every time. If I don't I roll the window down, get asked for the order, then have to tell them to wait while my wife decides to peruse the same menu she's seen 20 times before. Then it's usually "I'll have a small hamburger".

    I still write checks to pay some bills. I would never use them for a retail purchase.

    I have a storage bill that still needs a check and once a year for the tuition for my kids school, that's about it.

    Maybe Early 60s. Still too young IMO. I watch a kid in his 20's pull out a checkbook once... I was incredibly disturbed by this.

    checks for bills etc is normal.. but to use one in the store is bizarre.

    I should change the Title to Checks in the Store
