In my case, they were printing the transactions in my bankbook. Remember bankbooks?

Minflick - There was a time when it was typical for mail to be addressed to "Mr. and Mrs. Man'sName" ....
Evidently one term for that is "male-identified". Used as an insult in the feminist community, as I found out when my GF's roommate was mad at her.
“There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged.
One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world.
The other, of course, involves orcs." -- John Rogers

Hold up hands, who here remembers when the debit cards first came in? I remember there were no actual ATMs, they ran a credit card slip at the customer service desk of a grocery and then they handed the money over =)
I remember back in the 1960's everything was on paper in triplicate with carbon paper. parents had a Sears CC and all of the registers were eletro-mechanical no internet or network and I believe all of the transactions had to be entered and "uploaded" by hand every day. NO instant access to anything.

yes I do remember the printed passbook. that stayed around til the early 1980's when networks got better and faster. Then remote ATMs became a thing
