Damn Check Writers

This just infuriates me. You are standing in line.. say at the grocery store. There is an old lady that is standing there watching the stuff get ringed up.
Then at the end.. when the total is told, she will dig into her purse and finally drag out a checkbook. Then start searching for a pen. The check out lady offers one. Nope! Gotta keep looking - "I got one in here" Finally she starts writing out the check. OMFG! I swear she is writing her life's story. For the love of GOD... how long does it take to write a check?
AND MORE IMPORTANTLY: Why not get the damn check book out and fill in everything but the amount?
I've seen this more times than I can take anymore.:hammer::hammer::hammer:

Are you so efficient in your life such that you can demand it from others without being a hypocrite?

And here's another thought. Check writers (to me) are folks with a sense of how much money they have. They're not the ones defaulting on loans, or discharging bunches of credit card debt in bankruptcy.

Just my $.02.

I hate it too ......... same way when the total is revealed a guy decides to fish out his wallet. I think reasoning they are frugal is like me reasoning they are inefficient and inconsiderate.

Just my $.02. .............. :whistling:

By making me read your post and replying thereto, you have compromised my efficiency to the price of $.02. You know where to mail the check ...... :w00t2:

Are you one of them check writers that can't get the check ready while the goods are tallied up?
All I'm saying is: While you stand there watching the goods get tallied up..
Get out your checkbook. Fill in the date, name of store, and sign it. Then when told the total... fill that in. Fast and efficient
.
What about the people that write bad checks? There are many that do. So I don't see how charging on a credit card - which will pay the merchant VS writing a bad check equals managing money.

Sounds like majoring in minor shit. I go to the line that says CASH ONLY, and I have my wallet ready when the total is rung. This ain't hard shit to figure out...at least for me it ain't hard.

You spend hours and hours on FF.:clap: You have a little free time.

I'm a card swiper. I don't even need the cashier to make change.

All I'm saying is, if you're so critical of others about how they might be taking a few very small moments of your time, you better make sure you're not doing the same. Have you ever not noticed right away that the traffic light was green? Have you ever made a waiter come back a second (or third) time because you hadn't even looked at the menu, even though you've had ample time to do so? And while placing your order did you ask them, "What comes with that?" even though it was clearly noted on the menu?

I'll wait for check writers. At least they try.

You realize. of course, that you are taking away his joy as a perceived victim of geriatric abuse?

As a lawyer you should have read the rules to Ranting . Each Rant goes into a new thread .
You are not allowed to use an existing thread to start ranting about the former posters rantings ...

If you still intend to rant please post your own rant in the proper order . "Piggy back ranting" is not allowed .

Given that the term "rant" belies rules, I shall not remove my rebuttal.

So there. =P

The Hundred-Dollar Bill.
Santa Claus, the tooth fairy, and honest lawyer, and an old drunk were walking along when they simultaneously spotted a hundred-dollar bill laying in the street. Who gets it?
The old drunk, of course, the other three are mythological creatures.

Yawn.

Well? Are you so innocent of these time-wasting acts of inattention?

A man phones a lawyer and asks, "How much would you charge for just answering three simple questions?"
The lawyer replies, "A thousand dollars."
"A thousand dollars!" exclaims the man. "That's very expensive isn't it?"
"It certainly is," says the lawyer. "Now, what's your third question?"
