I came home from work last night to find a letter from a former employer. Five years ago, they wrote me a check for mileage that I apparently never cashed. Demonstrating their crack accounting skills, they have corrected this by canceling the old check and sending me a new one.
$187 in free money came my way yesterday! This is way better than finding $5 in a jacket you haven’t worn since last winter.
I have resolved to do something foolish and entirely non-practical with the money. There are definitely some new shoes in my future.
