Finally Something Positive

Since the year began as much as I haven't been stressed because I hated my previous job, things haven't been yippy skippy being unemployed. They've been really kind of bad to be honest.

However, today I got the copy of the money order stolen off my door Christmas Eve (my rent). It was cashed by a local business at a local bank. I chose to go to the bank to inquire why they would allow a depositor to cash an altered check endorsed without verifying ID. She explained how it could have happened but took copies of all my documents which included the money order, my ID, the police report, and my lease that had my landlords real signature on it. She took my number and said she's call me after talking to the business. Fair enough. Having recently been falsely accused I wanted to at least give the business a chance.

About an hour after my visit to the bank, I got a call and they had called the business and the business believes me 100% and I get to go to the bank tomorrow and get my money. The office manager of the business knows who used the money order to pay and noted that he hasn't been around in a while so she believes me. It's nice for something to finally go right.

The only question I have is how did he get it. It was taped to my front door. If it blew off and he found it, why not return it to me? If he came to my door and stole it, what kind of person is he? The office manager described the vehicle he drives so now I have this "big black truck with bulldogs on the side" to look for and wonder why anyone would do such a thing. I do admire the business for repaying me I just hope they are far more careful next time.

It's just nice to have a day where something went right.

Good ending! I recently had my debit card # stolen. I believe a waitress copied it at a resturaunt, only thing I can think of. The bank was great as well as the online store she shopped at. I still don't know to this day if she was caught, but I got my money back with no questions asked. Glad you got your money.

Having worked in banking for many, many years, there's a lot of dishonest folks out there. I'm very glad to hear your news. Hopefully, this is when your luck takes a good turn!

After the phone call I just had, I hope you're right. I think you're right; I hope you're right. I can't elaborate but I can say I'm grinning ear to ear and this is a great day.

I'm glad it worked out. My last trash pickup guy wanted the checks taped inside the trash can lid, and I was never comfortable with that. It might be better to just take it to the manager from now on. Here's to a better year!
