awkwardly

Saturday

There must be hundreds of thousands of Social Security or tax checks that go out every week with this note on the front:
IF RECIPIENT DECEASED
Check here and drop in mailbox.

There must be enough of them dead every week or every day to make this note worth while.

In other news, I learned a new word today. I was brought up to always read the fine print before signing anything, no matter how much the other person tries to rush you or makes it all sound like common, innocuous details. This tidbit from an agreement for a new checking account is innocuous but sounded funny:
DORMANT ACCOUNTS. If your Account is inactive for five years, we are required by state law to escheat the funds in your Account to the State of Michigan.
