    Well it almost cost me $700 for it.Let me start off by saying this,May 31st is not a good day for me PERIOD!!! I usually don't go anywhere on this day,as my car wreck that almost killed me was May 31st,2000.I am superstitious to a point,but I had to go put a cpl jugs out as I couldn't catch a chicken or get close enough to a cow.The day started off normal.I was going to go to the bank and deposit a check that was from a guy that bought a car off me.The check was made out to him,and he signed it and gave it to me.When I got to the bank,they had closed at noon,went back home and THOUGHT I had put the check up.A little while went by and I went to the bait shop and the grocery store to get a few different kinds of bait.I went,put out a few jugs and fished for a while.When I got home,I submitted my pics(I caught one fish,luckily on a jug) and went to bed.I got up this morning and was gonna go to the bank and I couldn't find the check.I tore this place upside down and it was nowhere.I started re-tracing my steps and called Steve(owner of bait shop) to see If I had dropped it there.NO,was the answer,my heart was skipping beats and I was ready to throw up.I called the guy to have a hold put on it but no answer.I then called the store and luckily,someone had turned it in!!! I'm waiting on him to go pick it up and bring it back to me now.I'm sure glad there are some honest people in the world to help out dumba**es like me out!!! I guess yesterday turned out lucky for me,I'm still sick though,just the thought of that happening.By the way,my other half has been calling me 'Check' since this,kind of a fitting nickname.OK,I just had to share my bonehead moment with you all.I bet even mellon hasn't done one this bad!!!

    If nothing else, you have soothed my frustration of thinking those types of things only happen to me. Now I know I'm not alone...:lol:

    Hey 'Check' :

    Did you want your username changed to this ?

    My other question for you are you related to JW, H2O Mellon ?

    ROTFLMAO!!! You ought to change it DH,my mother-in-law just called and said 'hey Check',she had been called already and told about it.I'm seriously beginning to wonder if maybe I was the third one in the space ship that was shot down,and my memory erased.I'm gonna have to trace down my family tree and see what is up.I hope this doesn't happen again,I've already been told I'm not allowed to have 'checks' or cash anymore.I think I'm getting what mellon has 'fishing burnout' for a different reason.I think I'm still gonna get sick,just thinking about what could have been.....
