Mo'gas

So farewell, then, mister cheque - you served us well. Well, actually, if the truth be told you were really a right pain in the arse, but we used to handle a hell of lot of you once upon a time. Check for the Shakespeare hologram, does the sort code match, which building society is it that you can't be certain of, check the signature... the list was endless. Quite how we didn't end up with many more bounced pieces of paper I'll never know. The news that even Sainsbury's has stopped accepting cheques in its stores from August must surely hasten their complete demise from all forms of retail. For once petrol retailers were ahead of the game - most of us had banned them a long time ago, but that didn't stop us from getting stick from the odd customer (and, boy, do we get some odd customers) who reckoned we couldn't refuse his perforation. At least it won't only be 'you petrol retailers' who are accused of being rogues and vagabonds.
