Out of the Blue

i still occasionally run into people in the supermarket line that write checks. i always roll my eyes as loudly as possible.
I saw someone doing this recently and found it interesting. Hadn't seen it happen in years and now you can give the cashier a blank check, it gets put into the register, prints the amount on the check for you, and you don't have to sign it. They just hand it back to you and get the funds electronically. Smart. Always nice to see useful advances in technology.
 
Truth is brutal. Prepare for pain.
