Crap, I meant to email that.



The sitter emailed thinking I had overpaid her.

I knew this was impossible. I didn't even take enough out of the ATM for me to pay her double.

T didn't have the extra amount, so it's not like he would have accidentally overpaid her out of his own pocket either.

Turns out her husband placed some money on the stack I had given her, but then he wandered off to other things and didn't tell her that. So there was money, exactly double, in the Stack From Imp.

Mondays just don't work out well for anyone.

Also? Just keep the $25. It wasn't much. Pay it forward to someone else who needs it, when they need it.
