I honestly dont understand the "credit card info" argument, Its no less safe with them than any other retailer, and if you have the debit card but still use checks there's a special place in hell for you. If its that big of a deal fo "record keeping" swipe the card and write the balance in your check book. Dont make everyone wait for you to write the damn thing out slowing down the whole line.
I only have a problem with people who use checks in two circumstances. First is when they wait until the whole transaction is over before they start filling the thing out. You can be writing the store name, the date, and signing your name on it while they're getting you the total. The second case is when you go through an express lane (like, 10 items or less, etc.) and the store doesn't have one of those systems where you just sign the check and they print all the information out on it. But really, I've had people who take way longer trying to figure out the debit swipe apparatus than it takes me to pay via check.
