Bad Checks

Nobody likes to get anything like this: I always assume I deal with legitimate business. I don’t accept personal checks when I want to be paid. Getting those instruments returned makes anyone afraid. Seeing “NSF” stamped on checks fills me with rage. I get as angry as a wild beast in a cage. For depositing bad checks, my bank charges hefty fees. My fists can get hard enough to knock down trees. If you don’t want me to shoot you with my guns, don’t ever send me a check drawn on insufficient funds. February 20, 2013

    Of course I am exaggerating. I remember one time while working in Atlantic City, a patron asked me why the domes on the casino ceiling were there. I told him they were machine gun turrets that open fire on anyone caught cheating. I believe that man actually took me seriously! Thanks for the review Ilene.

    hope you're exaggerating about the guns, but i do get your point and you're absolutely right in being angry about it...
