Nothing like sitting in long check-out line, watching my ice cream melt as an old lady takes her sweet old time writing out a check. That's almost like waiting for someone to dig through a 5-gallon-sized purse to find some change because he/she doesn't want to break a $20. I hated those days.yay let's revert to the good ol' days when people used something called personal 'cheques' to purchase goods. do people still use checks at supermarket? not likely..
