Cheque washing!

I know I have not been blogging regularly and as Bullshee says " this blog has spider webs hanging off it!" .. hmm .. am no cleanliness freak .. and lil spideys never hurt anyone .. so all those wannabe spidermans .. walk in and get bitten !

I was hanging out at my friends place, I get a call from my roomie-Thanku. He was going bonkers about some cheque.(uncashed one ofcourse!)

Thanku: Eda, do you remember giving me a cheque for 12K some time back ?
Me : err .. hmm ... yeah! (unless he is talking about something that i have to return .. what is the harm in saying YES!)

Thanku : hey, that cheque got washed off..

I have heard about bouncing cheques .. but washed off cheques.. *perplexed*

I knew that he had gone to some water theme park with his 'friends' .. but diving in with your wallet that has a cheque worth 12K .. ridiculous!

Me : so ?

Thanku : Do you think I can get another cheque from that person ?
Me : err .. *sheepish grin* ... time to own up my mistake .. which cheque are you talking about ?

Thanku : tries explaining .. eventually he succeeds! should have heard his sigh of relief at that point of time .. worth more than that washed out cheque i tell you!

Me : sure .......I will........ try asking him.. ( am still dazed that he had not encashed this cheque because this 'recent' incident happened almost two months ago!

He murmurs his thanks and signs off .. and leaves me thinking ..

1. What if the cheque was from some person I hardly knew .. slim chance he would write me another one!
In such a scenario who ends up being the loser ?

Me - who got my friend the phone worth 12K

Thanku: the person who lent me the 12K.

I thought and then decided let the JUNTA decide .. SO ..what do you people think ? ( i can always delete the 'unfavourable' posts! )

hey ...imagine my situation ...You know what a thing of that sort happened to me also...I wanted to copy some data from my friend ashish's laptop..So i borrowed a pendrive from my friend eldho and gave it to ashish to connect it to lappi...In the process of connecting it in int laptop he broke the jump who should buy eldho a new jumpdrive :)

Didnt know in between all the WonderLa adventure he had a 12k cheque in his purse.

I should adore Thanku`s benevolance, to lend u 12k for a friend of urs.. and his extreme distaste towards money to throw it off jst like that.

I think Thanku would have been the looser, for his absent minded carelessness.

I seriously doubt the credibility of this post because:
1. I cant believe anybody will b foolish enuf to lend u 12K
2. Go on a water ride with a 12K cheque......ridiculous
3. Cheque not en cashed for 2 months.....r u crazy
