Keep the change.

Quick funny story before I get back to working on actual work stuffs.

About a month and a half ago, roughly Christmas-time I wrote my sister a check. Then I forgot to mail it to her.

Then she came to Chicago. And I remembered the check. So I gave it to her.

She went home. Then she went to the bank. And she cashed that check with a real-live teller. Not at the ATM like I do.

On that month and a half old check, I had written "Keep the change, you filthy animal" on the memo line, a la Home Alone.

At the time I wrote it, it was funny cause it was Christmastime. Now it's just funny.

Word is the bank-teller enjoyed that. She even shared a story about how she wrote "Strippers" on the memo line of a check for a friend. I might try that next month on my rent check.

Happy Sunday! Get all the work done, won't you?

  1. That is hilarious! I love your blog makeover too! Did you do it all yourself? It looks great!

  2. Diana! Thanks so much. I spent the afternoon yesterday redoing it. I did it all myself except for the social media icons. I found those. But thanks for the compliment!
