How to Write a Check

by astanhaus


Remember the Girls episode where Hannah and Elijah do coke? Hannah proclaims (while on coke) to need to learn how to write a check.

(click on the bold-faced vocab word:))

Girls, it’s essentially fill in the blank. Don’t be scared!

Date= Month day, year

Pay to the order of=Name of person/organization who will receive my precious $$

Box with $= numerically how much $$ I am forking over

_____ Dollars= spell it out

Memo= Friendly reminder of why I’m paying the above

And finally my fav part, I sign my autograph on the _________!

Fingers-crossed one day my autograph will be worth more than the amount on the check!!
