    Don't. Google has been offering the feature for ages. It only works on
    listed numbers and thus you could do it yourself with a call to number
    Information (555-1212) and a map. And besides, what are you selling here?

    FS: My opinion $0.02.

    Re: ATTENTION: What are they thinking??

    So basically, what your saying, is that google has maliciously cross
    referenced the public phone books listed address's in order to automatically
    fill out the address field in their map search so that you can do in a few
    clicks, what normally took several page turns from several reference
    materials to accomplish?

    Yet another attack on our 1st amendment right to ignorant
    bliss....................................

    SS#s, I'll agree with... There's never a need to put it on a check.

    But, a large number of sellers *require* phone numbers or drivers
    license numbers... Whether they're printed on the check, or written
    by hand, they're still available to those same people you're afraid
    of.

    Um, if they don't give their home phone number to friends, their friends
    wouldn't be able to reach them.

    Not a problem for you, we understand, but for most of us it would be.

    The authority on information you seek would be your 13 yo. Of course
    if you wanna impress her, don't ask her first, find one of her friends
    and pay her off not to tell. Who is Hilllary Duff anyway.

    F.S. Incomplete knowledge of current pop culture due to checking out
    of after the Dukes of Hazard was cancelled from network television.
    However extensive knowledge of NFL football still maintained. Only 50
    duckies.

    Not to mention all those that offer cash for your soiled panties. What's up
    with that?
    And old secretive men that like to hang around the Men's room at subway
    stations, the ones that keep looking at you out of the corner of their eye
    while they wash their hands. The ones that are always dressed way too warm
    for the weather.
    And women in their 50's that still wear their hair real long, and wear thick
    pancake makeup and actually enjoy feeding live white mice to their pet
    snakes that they keep in the dining room, of all places!
    What if all those people start using Google?
    Shoot me now!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    There are still people who pay for retail purchases by check?
    How quaint. I haven't carried a checkbook for about 10 years now.
    Don't you hate being in a checkout line behind someone who
    doesn't even begin to fill out their check until all the purchases
    are tallied up? Considerate people who insist on using a check
    should fill out everything but the amount by the time they get
    to the cashier. Unfortunately, most check writers are not
    considerate of their fellow human beings or else they'd use a
    credit card.

    I, too, can't remember the last retailer I paid, by check.

    Along the same lines (no pun intended) as your check writers,
    are the check depositers at the drive-up window... Holy ****,
    folks. Endorse the checks *before* you get to the window!

    Well, that's... unrealistic.

    Not everyone qualifies for or wants to pay the interest on a credit card. And
    at least at the grocery store, where I still see a decent number of people
    paying with checks, the process has been speeded up to the point that it's not
    a big deal.
