How silly is this?

For the third time, the university I graduated from has sent me a check for $.05! FIVE CENTS!!! They want me to cash it. Can you imagine how ridiculous I would look, cashing a check worth five cents????!!!! It costs more to mail it. And driving to the bank to cash it probably costs more in gas than the check is worth.

How silly is this?

My mother was audited by the IRS six years ago and they discovered that she owed them 1 cent back from 1990. In their letter to collect that penny, they threatened her with prison. Her friends figured that with the amount paid to IRS employees, postage, mom's bank check, etc., that it cost the IRS over 1,000 dollars to get that penny.

Isn't it silly? I don't even know what to do with it! I daresay even calling to tell them how silly it is would be worth more than 5 cents. Hmmm, perhaps I'll just donate it! That will be all the money GU gets out of me, the rotten place! :)
