Was that an infomercial for OxyClean sans Billy Mays or an infomercial for Bic?

Do people write checks anymore? I thought those that didn't use Cash used Debit/Credit Cards, and those that still used checks used printed checks, not written checks. This almost seems anachronistic in this day and age. I don't even think my grandmother has put a written check in my Birthday Card for the past two decades, sending Gift Cards instead. If grandma ain't writing checks, then who the heck still is? Gen X, Y and Z certainly aren't.

Very kewl nevertheless though.

I still write checks.
I use a Sharpie Pemanent Marker with a fine point. The ink bleeds thru the paper.

If I'm not mistaken ( I could well be) in England it's legal to write a cheque on anything you want... I'm sure I read a book that had a bit about a guy who wrote a cheque on the side of a cow!!

EDIT: According to Snopes (never heard of it) it's a lie about the cow

Any permanent ink pen will do.
This is a simple marketing technique and you falled for it.

If you want to find someone who writes checks, just find me in a store. The person in front of me will write a check, and they'll wait until they are given the total to even start filling it out.

I mean really people, if your gonna use a check then prepare it before you go, lol
