    It is frustrating to be behind someone writing a check. They could at least fill in all but the amount while standing in line.

    And he waited until everything had been rung up before he started digging for the checkbook in his back pocket, and getting the wrong pocket. Then, didn’t have a pen. Then couldn’t find his ID. And misspelled the amount, so he had to do another check.

    I use checks every now and then, but now the store I go to automatically fills in the information for me, so all I need is a signature. I haven’t been beat up in line since! :-)

    Also, he was probably in the express line.

    A check is no worse than the person who uses a debit card and has to search for it then fumbles the PIN, doesn’t pay attention to the card reader when the additional questions pop up such as “do you want cash back” and the customer has to be prompted by the cashier to put in the required information.

    He should have paid attention to the sign.

    I stood in line once behind someone who wrote a check for 49 cents………

    Of course it was the express line, and I didn’t start filling it out until everything was rung up, and then I couldn’t find my ID. And they had to call over the manager. . .

    Ain’t that the truth but they always wait until the last minute to even begin filling out the check.

    The worst are the old ladies who not only wait until everything is rung up to fumble for their checkbook, but then write verrry slowly as if they were engraving each letter and numeral in hardened steel. But, cheer up! These aggravations are opportunities to grow in patience. And it also helps to remember that someday the old folks will be us!

    First, were you in the express lane? Second, did you wait until everything was rung up to remember you wanted to write a check and only then go fumbling around looking for your checkbook, then try to locate a pen, then take forever to write the check only to screw it up and have to tear that one up and start all over again…? If the answer to either of these is yes, you were asking for it.

    He waited till it was all rung up, dug out his checkbook, peered at the amount suspiciously for a few moments, slowly wrote it out, messed up a number and had to take the check back to fix it and initial, tried to dig out his id which he couldn’t find so a manager had to be called, the check wouldn’t run so the checker had to use hand-key it in and use tricks to get it to take (rubbing it back and forth on the edge of the checkstand usually does it), and then insisted on refusing to take his receipt and go until he’d balanced his checkbook right there in the line. Even if only one of these things happen it’s annoying. Not just for the customer behind him, but for the checker who is standing there feeling self conscious and somehow guilty for the line being held up and knowing people are going to take their frustration out on them.
