Pfft..

Am I the last loser to still catch myself writing '2007' on my checks?

Sheesh, It's not even January anymore!

The problem isn't that you're writing 2007 on your checks.

It's that you're writing checks at all.

Please don't tell me you're one of those farts who gets in the left lane, going the speed limit, 2mi before a left turn, or treat yield signs as stop signs.

I don't know if my brain could handle knowing a blog I like is written by one of the people who makes me yell I HATE EVERYBODY

And here I thought going the speed limit was the "right" thing to do. Oh well, what would I know? I still use checks too.

Anyway...Murphy, writing 2007 isn't that bad compared to the 1998 I wrote on an appointment card the other day. The patient looked so confused. ;-)

Heh... did that yesterday- dammit... Getting ready to do taxes I found three voids from LAST year for the same damn thing. You would think I would learn after all these years.

Meh, I don't know about stopping at yields, but I have been accused of driving like an old geezer, on occasion. Suppose that's 'cause; 1) I'm too much of a cheap bastid to have to spend (more) good $$$ on tickets or a new car, & 2) see #1.

The checks were for the mortgage, and that's just about all I write checks for anymore, except for Time Warner. I've tried to get the direct withdraw thingie twice. On both occasions, it doesn't happen, and I get a nasty gram in the mail for non-payment. Bleh.

1998? Jeez, talk about Olde Timey!

Taxes? Guess I should say thanks for reminding me, I don't suppose it could be any worse for me this year than last year, but I aint holding my breath...

Heck I have to write 2008 in big bold letters and attach it to my moitor or I'd say 2007 when i open my show :) It does help...

I write so many cheques that I have to cross out "1999". Welcome to the club of "you're not getting older...blah, blah, blah".
