100 Things Your Kids May Never Know About. The one that made me laugh was #92: “Writing a check.” Not in the NSW Knitters Guild! I swear; they’ll be the last cheque-requiring holdouts in the country. The Snook and I finally killed off our cheque account a couple months ago, since it was costing us $10/month and we wrote maybe three cheques a year. Of course, that came back to bite me in the ass when I needed to send in a new Guild member’s registration form last week. Instead I had to make a special trip to the post office to get a money order, which cost me $4.50. It’s ridiculous. We pay all our bills electronically now, and there’s still this one organisation requiring me to send in a bit of paper.
