Why Would I Hold A Check?


Tuesday, 27 May 2008 at 5:00 am Pacific USA Time.

Last year, I won a lawsuit against someone. I had lent him money. He didn’t pay me back. The judge found in my favour. Hooray. :)

The guy now has to pay me (with interest), so he sends a bit of money here and there. Every check he sends, whether he writes it or his wife writes it, has hand-written on it:

VOID AFTER 60 DAYS OF ISSUANCE

What in all that’s holy makes these people think that I am going to wait any longer for their money? As in why would I actually get money from someone I had to sue to get it, and then sit on a check for months without depositing it? Every check they have sent me, I’ve deposited it the same week if not the first business day after I get it. I lent this guy this money in early 2006, and am JUST getting it now. There is no way I’m going to sit on the check for months without depositing it. That truly makes no sense.

So we’ll call it what it is. Some sort of sense of power. Well, congrats. You’re very powerful. You’re going to make me deposit that check on the day I was depositing that check anyway! Feel the power that you have!
