payday

Tuesday, November 18, 2008
I pay the bills. Damn right, I do! I put the bills in my name when we moved in because I was way more on top of things than the BF was at the time. (Probably not, but that's my story and I'm sticking to it.) Plus, we received a discount the first year on our cable bill. Since we all know how ridiculous a cable bill can be and annoying if you are a Time Warner customer, I consider it a super smart move on our part.

Fast forward to his creative check writing. Oh yes. Each month, I never really know what I'm going to get on my check in the "for" section on the check. He'll drop it on my dresser and I'll find it with something inappropriate comment. One time it was "anal beads" or "sexual favors" and with each passing month, he gets more and more entertaining.

I used to deposit the checks in person to the bank teller. But since I get this weird look and the line "my boyfriend thinks he's funny" can only work so many times, I've made a conscious effort to deposit my checks through the ATM. Thanks, BF, the bank employees probably love your checks, too.

Alexa said...

another reason why you BF and i should be friends. i constantly put dirty things on the memo line to all my friends.

prostitute, for last night, cocaine, etc.

Haha, Jose does the same kind of thing (I, too, am the bill payer of the relationship) but instead he puts sweet things like "I love you" :)

I dont have to deal with time warner, orrrrr cox. Cus I live in the stix, we have our own cable company. My internet was $10 a month for high speed cable. Plus I have no echeck. I paid 60 bucks for direct tv, and internet together.

Anyway, that made me lol. the boyfriend IS funny. You know you're the "dinner conversation" when people see your checks.

Your BF sounds like the kind of guy who'd leave the name "Bawls" at a restaurant so when your table's ready everyone would hear "Balls, party of 2." Trust me, that's a great way to humiliate one's dinner partner.

*sigh* i sadly can relate as the bill payer/main "pants" wearer in the household & i get to deal with NYC Time Warner prices which are absolutely a stick up the back side!
I would absolutely die if bf was to do that to me...oh wait - i would be absolutely thrilled if he just paided me back on time! lmao

I write my dad's checks because he can't read. Sad, but true.

Sometimes, I'lll admit, I don't get over to his house to do them on time. So, he'll try and do them on his own.

He wrote me a check for me to deposit as I pay our VISA bill through my account.

On the memo line he put HIV.

He thought it was VISA.

Oh man.

I once deposited a check from a (male) friend whose sense of humor is apparently the same as the BF's (read: 5th grade humor).

Apparently I got paid a good sum of money for "BJ practice fees." LOL.

Douchegirl said...

Hahaha I literally laughed out loud when I read this. And then again when I read Always a Bridesmaid's comment.

I should start doing this.

Jest said...

Haha, that makes me laugh.
Just came across your blog and I know I'm going to like it!

Kelly and José said...

Props to your man for being so clever with his check writing. I wish i had thought of that. I am going to have to steal it from him and give it a try when i write my next check to Kelly
