I thought banks did it all electronically now. Don't they just scan it on one side and pay it off that way? Checks are puppies. Did I use that phrase correctly? I've never gone to the OO wiki to find out exactly what that means. Here's hoping I'm good at context clues! With my luck, however, the only skill I have is at Blue's Clues.
I was walking through the mall with my 2.5 year old daughter a while back and she said "Look Daddy, a clue!" Took me 5 minutes to figure out she was the Clemson Tiger logo on a store and was referring to Blue's Clues. She made that connection no problem, but when she asks where her book is and I say "Look under the chair", she stares around the room helplessly. She knows what "look", "under", and "chair" are, but putting them together meant nothing to her. Kids are weird.
But back to checks, why aren't we all using credit cards or some form of them, for everything now? I use ING for my online banking but its hard for me to convince people to give me their routing information so I can just deposit the money directly in their account. It saves them time, me time, and all the energy LM mentioned - and it's nothing different than what they give me when they give me a check - yet they won't do it. People are weird.
