Balancing - Phil's Rambling Rants
|Date:||August 15th, 2004 08:25 pm (UTC)|| |
I gave up balancing my checkbook years ago. I look at my online statements and see whether I recognize the checks that are listed...but I write very few checks anyway -- an average of one a month at most.
I have just enough paranoia about financial institutions (as an extension of my paranoia about corporations in general) that I want to be sure the numbers actually add up. (I foresee scams coming up soon, if they don't happen now, where companies just blatantly send out itemized bills where the total is larger than the sum of the items and wait for people to complain.)
