Cheque, please!

I've just taught a ~26-year-old colleague how to write a cheque, as he claims to have never done so before.

I suppose I write very few cheques myself nowadays – only to my mother, I think – but it's not that long since I was routinely writing 2-3 each month. I'd vaguely presumed that there must be people under a certain age for whom a paper cheque is unfamiliar, but I certainly hadn't realised that the 'certain age' was so high.

I'm 26, and written plenty of cheques. Most notably for rent when I shared houses when at uni, and after.

First cheque I ever wrote was for 1125.00 - my tuition fees. But it's been months since I wrote one and I've only recently found my chequebook at the bottom of a pile of papers.
