Why are people still writing checks at the supermarket?
C'mon folks, every bank offers check cards and every supermarket has the ability to use them. Yet I always see people writing checks to pay for groceries. What is wrong with people?
Tonight I'm at the grocery and the woman in front of me writes a check for her groceries. The clerk goes through the whole check rigamarole and hands her the receipt. Then she says she forgot to buy a bundle of firewood. The clerk rings it up and she writes ANOTHER check for FOUR DOLLARS. I thought my brain would explode.
Heaven helps us. As Henry Rollins would say, "They're stealing my life, a minute at a time."
