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
I agree, your life sucks 29 110
You deserved it 2 710

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.

Please excuse Brad's stupidity. Not all of us Americans are inconsiderate dickheads.

ramens actually pretty good.

OP could endorse the check over to himself and then deposit the check in the bank, banks usually make the first 100 available

Maybe you forgot your aunt's name?

cheque rofl its check retard

can you read? the op is from australia. they spell things different in different parts of the world.

Before you correct others, adress your own spelling mistakes. cheque: You should've capitalize the "C", it's the beginning of your sentence. its: If you're an American and confuse the words "it's" and "its" you're an idiot. That said, it's supposed to be "it's." You also forgot a full stop.

AUSTRALIAN DOLLARS R DIFFERENT 2 UR FKING AMERICAN DOLLARS! its 'queensland, australia', where money is worth something different to florida or wherever you live

Dear Fop, **address.

Ignorance for the loss.

ehh dont listen to that slut kaysl, she has her panties in a bunch ^---^

Correction, all you sluts' panties are getting my feet tangled up. Pull 'em up and have some self-respect, girls!

Kay girls should only use there mouth and hands for one reason Now go make us a sammich good girl

Oh, how highly original and amusing, Pleb. I'm rocked to the spiritual core by your razor-sharp wit *YAWN* That's just about the only response you'll win from me for a while, little man.

Two options: 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.

You need a driver's license to cash a check. The name on the check won't match her ID.

I have a long name & family even misspell it, so I go by a nickname. I've had family write checks out to my real name & misspell it. I've had family write checks out to my nickname. You have to endorse the check first with the name they wrote. -THEN- below it you have to endorse it again with your actual name. This lets the bank know that there was a mistake, but puts your real name on it too.

what a lovely family :)

welcome to my world! my own family (like aunts and uncles) cant get my name spelled right...*sigh* but just ask if she can write another one?

So it's spelt cheque in Australia. Interesting. It's check over here. Regardless, there's always one thing that we all can understand and that's Beer. So lets all have a pint and be happy.

Uhhh, just ask her to send another one.
