Banking Woes

Isn't it strange that sometimes when you make a mistake, another person involved in a transaction
makes an additional mistake? This makes it very hard to get things back in order.

For instance; I omitted a check from the register. (Yes, we have not entered the online system of paying our bills.) The balance was way off. Our friendly bank lady undertook the job, found the mistake and all is well with the finances.

However, once a month we receive a print-out from our financial institution with each check copied and listed on a 8 1/2 x 11 piece of paper.  L. files these in case we need to  look something up. The check number was 4208. We searched the print-out with no luck. That  particular check was the ONLY one not listed. Amazing. The good thing is, I wrote the check, it didn't bounce when the utility cashed it and we're back to balancing.
