    He doesn't even live close by. It was taped to my unemployment check. Honestly! For all we know, he REALLY needs it. Fortunately, his name and number were listed so I could call and tell him we have it. I had to leave a message, but I did tell him he could pick it up (it's a 45 min. drive in a lot of snow) or we could just throw it back in the mail, but he probably expects it today.

    (Sigh) I think our government usually works, or USED to work until the last two years. But when something like this happens, although it is an understandable error, it's kind of scary. Just saying...

    I think that's probably more a "machine at work" than our government at work. No one actually touches the checks.

    You should probably write/call them and explain what happened so that someone can go make sure the machine is working properly. Not everyone is as honest as you are.
