I just couldn't help myself, I had to do it. And boy do I feel better too!
Friday, I sent in a book club order for I to give to the school. Horrors upon horrors I sent actual CASH with it (not realizing that it is a 4-letter word) Not on Friday (when she got the $), or on Monday (which wouldn't have gotten me that upset either) NOOOOO today she sends the $ money back with the following note (yes written in green ink)
*I can only take checks for Scholastic (made out to Scholastic). If you can get this back to me by Wed. (4/13), I'll hold the order until then. Thanks.
Silly me ... When I saw on the order form "Money or check made out to ..." I just assumed that that meant I could send in cash. How stupid can I be. Oh course that statement reads "Only checks are allowed and if you don't get them, make sure you let the parent know at with the least amount of notice you can possibly give them" There happened to be a very good reason I didn't send in a check ... I didn't have any! My DH cleaned out the office and packed all of the "non essential" paper away and put it in the attic. I guess he just assumed that a box with a 1/2 inch layer of dust constituted "non essential" (I love e-bills and debit cards!)
Of course I had to write her an apology note:
Dear Mrs. S#####, I'm sorry for the misunderstanding. Thank you for holding the order for I#####. I guess I just assumed that "Money or check" meant "cash or check". I'll try to remember next time.
I'm soo ashamed.
