It's interesting to realize that some folks still "write checks" and take them to the bank to deposit them, and all like that.
I'm still using the same batch of checks I've had since 1997, and they'll probably last me the rest of my life. Just don't have any reason to write them any more. The technology that replaced them is one of the ones that I've embraced because it makes my life simpler and doesn't have the whiff of "addiction" and "dependence" that so many other technologies do and that I can see affecting other people's lives in negative ways.
Swiping cards for gasoline, on-line bill payments, PayPal, automatic deposits, etc means I write about 6 checks every year .... If I had to "go back", I suppose I could, just like I could go back to a party-line telephone, but I'd rather not!!
