7/28 - Throw'em the Heater
It's Friday and that means its time to hear from you. Let me know what you hate (and as always, I'm accepting bribes).
Last week's winner: Rev. Steve
(as a reminder, please post your own hate in addition to any commentary you might have about Steve's)
Without further ado, Steve's hate:
Why are there still people in this world who pay at the checkout line of a drug store or supermarket by writing a check right then and there?
I would expect this behavior out of old people who are 80 years old or older. But in both cases, these people looked to me to be in their 30's (and both looked like dorks in my mind).
With the advent of debit cards, no one should ever write a check in a checkout line again. It's not like a debit card is hard to get anymore. Checks should be reserved for bill payment through the mail or payroll checks or payment of contractors. There ought to be a law about using them to buy groceries.
I was especially mad in one case where a manager had to be called over. And there wasn't another line I could get in.
I'm thinking these peope still use passbooks at the bank. Does anyone use a passbook anymore?
People who write checks at a supermarket who are young enough to know better... I hate you"
