Rotten Beef….What's Eating You?

    What the hell happened to the days when you could bring a check written from Bank XYZ along with your proper identification and get it cashed with no hassles?

    I hope someone high up from Regions Bank reads this because I think your banking practices are really f***ed up and I’m being nice when I say that! I bring a check drawn on YOUR establishment and you try to charge me $30 because I am not a customer of yours? THAT’S OUTRAGEOUS! This certainly is no way to win customers in my opinion! I’ve had previous negative experiences at your bank but this one is the last straw! I will NEVER bank at Regions Bank! Never, Never, Never!

    I had to go to the grocery store tonight to get just a couple things. In and out, just what I planned. But somehow someone always changes my plans.

    I get in a checkout lane where a customer ahead of me forgot something and had to have the bag boy run and get one. So I jump to the “Express” line. Boy that was sure a mistake. The woman in front of me wanted to pay for her groceries with a paper check. She was from out of state and the cashier had to call for approval and then it took the lady what seemed like forever to write the check and enter it in her check register.

    So my question is, who pays by paper check in the grocery store anymore?

    Not to sound prejudice, but the woman must have been in her 60’s at least. And when I though about it, it occurred to me, I could not remember a time when I saw a younger generation writing out a check while shopping. I said to the cashier when it was my turn, “that is probably the last generation you will ever see pay by a paper check when shopping”. She apologized and then agreed.
