    Yeah, it’s probably ‘cuz you’re overdrawn. They owe the bank more in overdraw fees than they’ll ever be able to make up for.

    Groan. It’s THEM again. And it’s not just their checking account that’s overdrawn!

    Mmmm – I would like some new antiques. Nothing worse than second-hand old stuff.

    I had to magnify the comic about 300 times just to make sure that sign didn’t say “Smell our new line of candles and pot brownies.”

    But no…. it says (I think ) “pot pourries” (sic)

    Is it just Julie’s bad spelling again…. or did she want us to have to look closer?

    Joy is so cheerful about admitting that all the merchants have to call about her checks.
    I think it makes her feel special.
    Proves she’s more important than ordinary people who get less attention.

    And Burl is so casual about being overdrawn.
    Isn’t everybody?

    What are checks for if you can’t write them for more than you have?
    If he HAD the money he could just always pay cash and not spend $20 extra for a box of checks.

    When at the grocery I now scout the people in front of me. If I see a hint of a checkbook I move to another line even if it’s longer. Just the other day I got faked out by a person who was concealing their checkbook with their gloves. My groceries were on the conveyor so I was “toast”. Took her 2 minutes to write the check and 3 minutes to process it.

    While working in a bank, I had to explain to a customer that just because he had checks did NOT mean he had money in his account!

    Come to think of it, his lastname might have been Penny!

    She doesn’t have to think about it. She knows. Most of us look forward to SS"s comments daily.

    Doesn’t have to be a recycled strip. I have been to diners where there is a shop in the front. Depending on where it is, it may be anything from a gift shop to antiques set up.

    Oh yeah, the Penny’s are red-flagged on every cash register in 5 states.

    I had a problem a few years back where my checks kept getting rejected. It turned out to be bad data at the approval company, a problem with an overdraft that I corrected but the company didn’t correct the problem in their records. After calling the company three times and getting the same excuse I threatened to report them to the better business burough, that’s when I found out that I couldn’t report them because I wasn’t paying for their services. The problem was never corrected until I switched banks and check accounts.
