people, I know HOW to pay online. I know HOW to buy and affix a stamp. I know how to pay bills and make phone calls and all that.
What surprises me in regards to this thread --- which was supposed to be a little economics puzzle looking at the macro-scenario and ultimate cost per
transaction type is how many of you took it way too literally as if it's a serious problem for me, and are offering solutions. Not only does that miss
the entire point (that's okay, my bad for failure of presentation), but that you all have fallen for the giant online banking thing.....Save paper, go
online, it's free and easy! Or better yet, they'll take the money out automatically for you!! Or even best of all -- they'll shut down the internet
and all of your "digits" will disappear!! Do you not worry about that?
For all your conspiratorial suspicions, you are fine with not having control over your own affairs?
Yeah, well, I'm not comfortable giving "the internet" that much credit for security. Every day thousands get their accounts hacked, fraudulently
used, and credit ruined because of simony -- usury -- and trusting their most precious information to "the cloud."
Conspiracy theorists? LOL!! In real life, hackers get in. Just wanted you all to know.
As for the stamp? I'm going to let the bill ride until next month and see what happens. I expect I will have a carry over of the $1.05 with no 'late
fee' added in.
Sorry I bothered.
