6. We have to recognize our own obsolesence!

In the '80's, I worked in banking for five years.

"Automatic Teller Machines" were a novelty.

We did hand-entered ledgers in Loan Department - no room for error.

We would never replace checks with "electronic transfer cards." It would never be convenient, and everyone likes a little time to "cover" that check!

All checks were sorted at the bank, and then transported to a clearinghouse and routed to the correct bank! Everything was checked and double-checked!


Most of the companies I worked at - and that bank - are long gone. And jobs, pay and benefits got worse year after year.

It has all turned out exactly as predicted.
