    The last 3 times I was in the “express” line there was an old lady in front of paying by check which takes about two to three minutes to process, annoying everyone else behind me. I used my debit card which took all of 30 seconds. Can’t they remember a simple pin. number instead of using the monetary equivalent of the buggy whip?

    An “old lady” using “the monetary equivalent of the buggy whip” is quite likely not very tech savvy with something as simple (to us) as a debit/credit card. Try to be a little patient with elderly folks,friend. God willing,that’ll be you one day.

    i saw a headline this week for finding your mate via DNA analysis.
    We’ve advanced so.

    Speaking of advancing…
    I think what matters is the content of a bank account, and the person interfacing with it, more than the interface used.
    I wonder how little-ol’-lady’s account & banking habits compare to MR. A_Deam4u’s.

    re. “old lady … using the monetary equivalent of the buggy whip”

    Her generation didn’t have electronic banking.
    Her generation invented it.

    I am surprised the store still takes checks. Most places here stopped.

    bet the lady paying with a check doesn’t have to worry about someone stealing her credit/debit card information and charging up a big bill. Lately it is so bad with different stores being hacked that I have started using cash when I can.

    I haven’t seen any stores that refuse checks. I don’t write them much but I do try to use cash when possible. I also check my bank account every day just in case.

    Really? You had to make a political comment? Well since you feel you must. When has the truth ever mattered to you libs? Or to this “most transparent administration in history”?

    A credit card is even easier than a debit card. All you do is swipe and your done. No pin to memorize

    I’m surprised too. Many checks bounce.

    Elly doesn’t need to buy the tabloid – the stories can’t possibly be as much fun as the headlines.
    Remember the Batboy stories one had? This guy with pointy ears, a pushed up nose and fangs was featured regularly on one of them. : “Batboy rescues cat from tree” “Batboy becomes honorary mayor” “Batboy joins Marines”“Batboy fathers twins with Octogenarian Space Alien”
