13 May : Cheques

MasterM : I'm writing a cheque!
MrM : Haven't you ever written one before?
MasterM : No! Never!

MasterM sends a picture of The Cheque

MrM : That's a paying in slip
MasterM : Right. So what's that for?
MrM : Paying in money.
MasterM : How am I going to pay my subscription to the Fly Fishing Club?

MrM sighs and gets out his cheque book.


  1. First time for everything. Personally, I blame it on the parents ...

  2. Clever MasterM :-)

    1. It is not so long ago that he rang up and asked what you call those things that you put letters in. Envelopes? Yes!

  4. Actually, come to think of it, I very much doubt either of my daughters have ever written one.. wierd...

    1. No - but I bet they have an app for transferring money by BACS. I have never done that. Which is much more shocking than never writing a cheque.

  5. Now I'm wondering how he got hold of a paying in slip!
    I think Mr M should send him a Postal Order.

    1. He requested a cheque book but when they sent a paying-in book he didn't know what a cheque book looked like so he didn't realise there had been an error.

      Funnily enough he had to provide a Postal Order as security for his South African student visa. It was a surprise to realise they are still available.

  6. A sign of the times! Mine have never written a cheque either but I've never transferred money electronically... That would involve online banking and that's a whole new ball game!


Thank you! I love reading your comments and even though I don't always have time to reply I am really grateful to every one who joins in the conversation.
