    I'm baffled by the mind set where someone writing a check is a huge annoyance.

    You've never been stuck behind an old lady in the express lane of a grocery store while she takes 15 minutes to write a check, have you? It took me less time to shop, get to the checkout lane, put my groceries in, pay, get my receipt, and walk out to my car then it did for her to write the fucking thing.

    Ladies.

    SPERG STORY TIME

    Once at a board game night I was playing some game for the first time and I was pondering my next move, and someone else said "you have to move like this, it's in the rules".

    I heard the obvious sarcasm in his voice, but I was concentrating so intently on the board game that my self-trained "not sure if serious" sense wasn't paying attention, so I did what he said.

    People who go ten under in the passing lane. Fuck them. Fuck them. FUCK THEM. Death is too easy for them. They should have fresh papercuts opened in between their toes daily before being scrubbed down with a rock salt exfoliator.

    After their daily pure capsaicin eyedrops that is.

    Guy on a motorcycle was going 100+ and weaving last night. He blew past me close enough to rattle my windows and spike my heart rate. Then I saw him pulled over down the road.

    Feels good.

    I'm baffled by the mind set where someone writing a check is a huge annoyance.

    Because they never take steps to make the process faster, like signing the check and writing the date before getting in line. Sometimes they don't even have their fucking checkbook in their hand until the cashier is done ringing them up. And then they're always slow as shit.

    "Oh, the total is $17.32? Oh, I guess I'll pay by check. Hold on while I fish through my purse for my checkbook. Do you have a pen? How much is the total again? $17.32? Okay. What's today's date? Okay. Seven... twenty-eight... two thousand... eleven. Safe... way... What was the total again? Okay. Seventeen... dollars..."

    It wouldn't be, if they pulled out their checkbook and had everything except the amount filled out by the time the checker started scanning their stuff.

    But that's not what happens. They wait until their stuff has been completely checked out, and then start digging around in their purse for their fucking checkbook.

    Seriously, I want a store to just make it policy that anyone who does that, the checker just sweeps their groceries to the floor and tells them to go to the back of the line again.

    At least that is understandable for messing up traffic, and it's only the fault of the construction crew and some planners. But when traffic is messed up for no reason other than hundreds of people, all day long, are too dumb to think ahead more than 30 seconds, so just keep driving straight ahead? It just seems like a metaphor conjured up to warn of people who meet an easily avoidable fate.

    this is not related to writing checks

    but you will like this I think

    I worked at a gas station for a year and a half after I flunked out of college

    and two of my friends were the assistant managers, and the manager was an elderly lady (70ish) who wasn't really involved

    and people treat the employees at gas stations like dog shit for some reason

    so when someone would come in with some crumpled, sweaty dollar bills and a ton of change, and dump it on the counter, and then walk away

    saying over their shoulder, "put that on pump 3"

    I'd just scoop it up and drop it over the counter on the floor in front of them

    and then when they were all furious, I'd kick them out

    Being old does not entitle you to be an inconsiderate fuckhead, and I'm tired of this attitude that somehow having made it to a certain age without dying means you have an excuse for just not giving a shit about other people.

    Shops don't accept cheques in the UK anymore.

    Even when they did, they had cheque printers. You'd just feed the blank cheque into it and it would print the date, payee, and amount in the relevant places, then the person paying only had to sign it, swipe their cheque guarantee card, and sign the guarantee receipt.
