Default A Boring Question

Does anyone know of a company that makes checks/cheques Euro-style?
The cheque stub at the side seems like a much better way to keep track of your checks and where they're going etc than having to write down the cheque number on a page at the back.
I doubt they exist over here but I just wondered.

Told you it was a boring question but you looked anyway didn't you?

What about using a check book with duplicate checks? The carbon copies serve the same function as stubs, except you don't have to waste time filling them in.

HTH!

It's a good question, something that's bugged me for ages. I wish I could help you, but i don't know!

I'll be keeping watch to find out though!

Isn't that the element? Or is that term reserved for kettles?

My, I seem to be having an English language clarification morning. What fun.

I wouldn't know, but what's the professional term for the occupation of the little man that lives inside the fridge and turns the light on and off when you open the door?

So sorry to see that your question does not appear to be taken seriously.

Have you considered using ATM cards and online bill-pay at all?
