Zero Dollars…

It is with great anticipation that I go to our mailbox every day. I don’t know why, I guess I just always look forward to what might be in there. So when I received a check from YAHOO! today for no apparent reason, I was puzzled. Upon opening said check, I was even more puzzled….

That’s right. The fine people at YAHOO! sent me a check for zero dollars and 00 cents. I have no idea why. There was no letter, no explanation. Just a check for zero dollars and 00 cents. I’m sure there is a great analogy here somewhere, I just can’t seem to find it. Do I actually OWE my church 10 cents now as a tithe too? I am dying to take this check to the bank and hand it to the teller with a deposit slip. I just want to see their face. It will probably match mine when I opened it…..

Question: What would you do with this check? GO!

    Did you ever use Yahoo’s ad network? I got one today as well (mine was for a whopping $1.65), and I’d heard they are shutting it down, so they must just be spitting out checks to everyone who used it.

    I got one of these too. Someone said it might have been related to the Yahoo Publisher Network. Seems like a lot of money on postage and paper.

    Thanks guys. Good to know I’m not the only one that got one. I must have signed up for that at some point in my journey through the Matrix. It made for an entertaining day. Don’t spend it all in one place guys!!

    Just for kicks, I would go to the bank and try to cash it or deposit it. Everyone needs a laugh or two as an adult!!
