A quick Nora gem

Well, I'm wrapping up my second trial in 2 weeks . . . I'm so tired!!! So I'm going to bed so that I'm all rested in time for my closing argument tomorrow morning but, before I go, I wanted to leave you with this quick little gem . . .

We were sitting around tonight at my mom's house chatting with some friends and we got on the topic of things that are annoying. At one point in the conversation, our friend David said that he got SUPER annoyed by people who still write checks. That's when this conversation happened:

David: You know what I think is really annoying? People who still write checks.
Erin: Me, too! And that's my mom! She still writes checks.
Mom: No, I don't!
Erin: Yes, you do.
Mom: No, ma'am.
Erin: Mom - yes, you do. You still say things like "I'm gonna go cash a check at the grocery store."
Mom: No, I don't! I use my IPM card!
Erin: Your "IPM" card??
Mom: Yes! I use that and I get money at the . . . the . . .
Erin: The "IPM" machine?
Mom: Yeah!

What would we do for entertainment without her around???

Do you mean just writing checks to get money out, or writing checks in general because if that's the case, then I must be behind the times. oops. Don't worry Nora, I'm right there with you!!
