Why Write Checks?!?!??

Honestly, why do people write checks anymore? I’m not talking about to pay for bills, but for normal things like the grocery store? I just love it when there’s a huge long line and everyone has to wait for some moron to fill out their check, taking their time writing out the store’s name, the total, etc. Then the cashier has to write their driver’s license number on the check, verify it…

These people need to get in the 90’s and get AN ATM CARD. It comes out of the same place, INSTANTLY. And it’s about 10 times faster.

Please, leave the checks at home for the bills.

I think my favortie is “The government reads everyone’s e-mail.” It was busted…but I’m not so sure it isn’t true …

And now, a Microsoft-owned company is making the same recommendation! Neowin summarizes the press release, which pretty much says dump IE and use Firefox:
