Follow the bouncing check

December 12, 2008

Last summer ex #2 asked if I could loan him a couple hundred dollars for a week. When the week passed he gave me a check for $200. I deposited it in my bank and you guessed it, it bounced. He eventually paid me back less the bank fees. He asked me to tear up the check. I didn’t. I kept the check and now I am considering depositing it again.

It will probably bounce again but his bank will charge him upwards of $40 and that could have a snowball affect on his account. If they honor the check that’s even better because the bastard owes me 12 grand and I’ll probably never see a dime of it. He won’t be expecting it so it will really piss him off.

Should I deposit it again?

    You should really just drag his ass to the bank and make him give you cash.

    He’s bigger than me. Since he wouldn’t pay for his daughter’s lunch (he said he had no money)I don’t see him offering to ope his wallet to me.

    Depositing it again might make you feel better, but I don’t know about it having a snowball effect on his account.

    Have you tried for some of the more traditional methods of vengance (keying his car, telling everyone he works with that he gave you herpes, putting up posters in his neighborhood accusing him of being a sex offender, etc.)?

    Stanley! We are kindred spirits! No I have not done those things, I dream about them occasionally but I’m a nice person and I couldn’t do those kinds of things. He is the father of my daughter and it is my job to try to foster that relationship rather than tear it down. I can talk about it here and get it out of my system and feel better, and it does help. I realize it’s probably getting old for readers however.

    Well there’s always the failsafe method of writing about him, but using a totally different name and then giving him a small penis.

    Woman, you are hilarious and where have you been all my life! We seem to have so many of the same friends, yet I’ve somehow missed you.

    Nanny, I can’t lie and I don’t need to, he has a small penis.

    Sis, Nanny goat and Jen, you guys are disgusting, but hey, if it is small, then he deserves it! I say, deposit it again, make him pay for his mistakes.
    Ps, Jen, I never want to piss you off, I think you can be dangerous, specially being a redhead. I have a really good e mail about getting someone back who pisses you off, if you are interested get back to me.

    Sign up for an appearance on Judge Judy and take lots of proof. Just remember to (A) speak up (B) don’t lean on the podium or put your hands in your pocket (C) don’t give more information than asked for (D)For God’s sake, don’t say “uh huh” (E) sneak in a quick mention of his missing genitalia.

    Yeah, she’ll rip your eyeballs out but it’ll be worth it to get it on national tv.

    No, don’t deposit the check again, he sounds like a loser. Any guy that borrows money from a woman deserves to be an ex.

    I think you should deposit it again, just for fun. If he throws a fit about covering the check previously, just look at him blankly and say “Oh! I forgot.”

    And never, ever lend him money again, no matter how compelling the need seems to be.

    Give it to him as a birthday or Christmas gift. It lets you off the hook for any shenanigans around the check, and it lets you off the hook for getting him a gift. For extra bonus points, claim that it’s from “all of us.”

    Deposit it again. He deserves it.
    Now Jen, what you need to do is sign him up for some subscriptions, like say “Cross dresser Monthly” and have it delivered to his place of employment. I recall you wrote he gave the dog a $50 collar while you got zilch.
    A good payback is to print up a fak letter from NAMBLA, and send it to his employer, asking to garnish his wages in retirn for expenses the organization incurred providing the small Southeast asian child. Think that might get his attention?
