Attention anyone still paying with a check in the grocery store. Are you aware that the year is 2010? Maybe we don't have the flying cars and dehydrated dinner pills that sci-fi movies promised us, but we have made some progress. By taking out your pen and really, literally writing on an actual, physical PAPER check, you spit in the face of science. You basically say to the world "I liked it better when Taft was president." The fact that paper checks even still exist merely an oversight. Enjoy it while it lasts. Soon they'll be history like laser disks and pennies, and you'll have to figure out how to memorize a 4 digit PIN and catch up with the rest of the world. Until then, I'll be behind you, tapping my foot and sighing audibly.
