Free Money

The other day we received a check in the mail for $60 from the water company. After our overuse of water, I was very excited to have a $60 check to put towards our bill.


The only problem was that it was from our previous water company that we used over 2 years ago at our old house. I thought it was pretty strange to be getting an overpayment check from the company that we used to use, but I gladly accepted it. I was holding out hope that they had heard of our water ordeal and decided to "help us out". It was all very wishful thinking and I knew better! :) I didn't cash the check because I thought that it might be some kind of a mistake. The check sat in the bin on my refrigerator and then the water company called. They had made a mistake and asked me to destroy the check. Unfortunately, I had to do just that!

Why is it that when it comes to money it's always "if it sounds to good to be true..."? That stinks!

Bummer, what a tease that water company is.

Boo! Seems like they made the mistake, they should have to pay for it!
