My husband and I are disagreeing about check writing and cashing etiquette.

We mailed our rent check the other day and it showed up as cashed today. Husband thinks it is rude our landlord cashed it before the 1st. I don't think it is rude at all. (The check was dated for the 20th or so, whatever day we mailed it.)
Husband is also wondering if it's rude for him to date the check for the 1st in the future. My personal preference is just get the money taken out of the bank account asap.
This is the second month we've had this discussion (we used to have checks sent automatically by our bank, but they would sometimes not arrive, so we've resorted to writing checks). Does he have a point?
