Today, I got a birthday card in the mail from my aunt. I got all excited when I saw a cheque inside, but the cheque was addressed to the wrong name. Not only did my own aunt forget my name, I couldn't even bank the $60. FML
For some people, $60 can mean the difference between having groceries to eat and gas in the car for a week versus not. As a struggling student in my early 20's so broke I was wearing shoes with holes in the sole and eating Ramen every night, receiving $60 for my birthday would have been a huge blessing. I understand the OP's dismay at not being able to cash the check.
1) "Hey Auntie , you must've stuck the wrong cheque in the envelope. Whoop! Could you write me a new one?"
2) Endorse the back of the cheque with the name she put on. As long as your Aunt doesn't call the bank claiming fraud, you should be fine. ;)
Hardly the end of the world, or a FML moment.
Speak your mind, but please try and be respectful.
