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.
