Letter from my bank

Here is a letter we received from our bank... the one we trust with our mortgage.

"Your ending balance, from the last month of the accounting history, is
$4672.99. Your required balance according to this analysis should be

This means that you have a shortage of $.01. This shortage may be collected from you over a period of 12 months or more unless the shortage is less than 1 month's deposit in which case we have the additional option of requesting payment within 1 month. We have decided to collect it over 1 months."

It cost the bank 61 cents to mail this letter! Are you kidding me?!?


  1. Tape a penny to the letter and send it back with postage due upon receipt then see if they still want their penny, LOL.


Come again!
