Do you use Cheques??
In order to pay your rent, do you write down however much your rent is (say a thousand) on this piece of paper, put it in an envelop, slap a stamp on it, throw it in the mail whatever and then.. hope for the best?
This question brought to you by a baffled BC who, growing up, always thought day to day US life was pretty much the same as it is here & am beginning to learn that there are some really specific differences in day to daily life.
ETA: Well I have learned a bunch! Thanks a lot for answering ^_^
