Gosh, good thing you're not bitter or anything. <g>

Seriously, haven't you ever bounced a check? I sure have, and it made me
feel more stupid than criminal. I never did it on purpose, and always paid
the price, in IF (insufficient funds) fees and service charges.

Unless this guy was a known bad-check-passer (I'm sure there's some hip
NYPD Blue term for this, but can't think of it), I think you're being a
little harsh. I can understand some envy/jealosy, but to call him a
criminal seems severe, unless you've left out some facts.

Anyway, back to the topic. I wish Dawn would come back and clarify her
initial post - I doubt she expected this sort of response!
