Coming to a store near you.
I noticed Rite Aid in Eureka's Henderson Center is processing checks electronically now. What that means is you don't have to fill out checks anymore. They just scan your check to get the info from it and then you sign the sales receipt. Pretty neat but it makes you wonder why people don't just use debit cards in the first place?
It will be nice when more stores, especially Winco, start doing this. One of my pet peeves is those of you that insist on writing checks for everything, especially when you wait until you're told the total to bring out your checkbook. Then, you have to fill in everything on the check and make an entry in your checkbook ledger while everybody stands behind waiting. I find that quite annoying.
In the meantime, until Winco starts doing electronic checking, how about trying what I do when I have to write a check. I think City Garbage is the only place I write checks anymore and that's only if I don't have cash. I fill out the check, except for the cash amount before I get to the scale so when I get to the scale all I have to do is write in the cash amount and I'm done.
Try it, and save everybody in line behind you an annoyance.
