Paying By Check

In the last few years, lots of people have had to replace their bank debit/credit cards; the numbers (or the cards themselves) get stolen or replicated.  And a number of card numbers get .....ahhh........."lost" by retailers.

So people replace the cards, which is usually inconvenient.  Not horribly inconvenient, but a pain in the ass.

There's a solution:  pay by check.  I'm beginning to do that.  I encounter no dirty looks from cashiers, and I've never had a payee return a check demanding electronic payment instead (although one has gotten close and was warned.)

Modern techno-foodadderie is all the rage, but it ain't all the solutions; often, it's a bigger problem.

Drive your own damn car.  Pay with cash or by check.  Mail stuff.  Talk on the phone, don't Google on it.

Learn how to ride a horse and shoot straight, too.
