But on the flipside, it's now the year 2012, and everyone in the US still writes fucking checks. CHECKS! Holland stopped using checks literally twenty years ago. You can't even GET them anymore.
Everyone? I'd call that a significant exaggeration -- checks are fading pretty quickly. Many retail locations won't take them. I use them for getting cash, as I said, and for paying my bills through the mail but nothing else.

I could switch to paying bills electronically from my credit union, but I have yet to see an on-line billing system I thought was reasonable which you didn't have to pay extra to get access to. I'll be damned if I'm going to pay money to make paying bills easier for them. Plus being someone who has worked in the computer industry since 1988, I don't really trust computers much.
 
Truth is brutal. Prepare for pain.
