Mom, welcome to the 20th Century!

by Dual Income No Kids on January 7, 2007 · 0 comments

I learned yesterday that my mom just moved into the 20th Century with her first debit card. Hearing this news had me a little dumb struck, wondering how it is that she functioned without a debit card.

It turns out that she actually used checks! For everything. Can you imagine! I just picture carrying around a checkbook and the looks you would get!

Not only that, but she lives nearly an hour from the nearest bank! While I’m a bit baffled that she could function with no debit card, online bill pay, or online banking, it is a testament to antiqued way of handling money management.

Now I’ll be working on moving her into the 21st Century with an ING money market account! Wish me luck!
