Some of our fellow tenants here at Nana & Opa's house, Auntie & Cousins, have been having a pretty dramatic time in recent days. Today, we had a bit of excitement with them:
Auntie has been waiting on a check to arive in the mail for some time now. After letting it go for a few days, she decided to look into the situation today and recieved some disturbing news - her check had arrived last week, been opened by someone else, and cashed without her authorization or endorcement. We immediately got to work calling the bank and post office to figure out what could be done.
While calls were being made, we remembered that Auntie had a doctor's appoinment in just a few minutes. Opa and the Uncles needed Opa's car to go visit the bank and straighten things out, so the only car left was ours. Since we felt the need to stick together in case we needed to make visits to the police department and such, Auntie and I packed all three kiddos into the back seat of my car to head to the clinic. Needless to say, they were packed in tight.
After adventuring around for a couple of hours, things are in the works to get the situation straightened out. We're hoping that by getting a lawyer involved we'll be able to make things happen quicker, but it's still going to be quite a few phone calls made and reports filed before we know anything.
