43. I Love Checks, Again
I had stopped writing checks for anything but paying bills, and used a credit card for even ordinary small purchases--big mistake. Like many people, I noticed bigger and bigger credit card bills, fees, interest, all this crap, then several months ago, went on a complete reversal, not using the credit card unless for emergencies, paying down the bill, and going back to checks. I pay for things as I have the money, and wait if I don't. It was slow at first, had to show drivers' license, until I got into the store's system and they got used to me. Now at my usual stores, they don't even waste time on a computer-check because they know me, also the scan goes through immediately. I have never had a problem, and if you do, it isn't because it is a check; it is because the corporation is choosing to make a target of you. I love checks again, and love the fact that I am reducing the credit card oppressor to only minimal use. I will get rid of credit before I get rid of checks; now it is a war against the credit card industry.
