I opened the envelope like Charlie Bucket.
I was right! There was a mistake! And my mortgage company wanted to rectify the error they made. They miscalculated what they reported to the lawyer and issued a check to me to fix the mistake.
I proudly received a check from my mortgage company for $0.01. That's right, they sent me a check for a penny. I am thinking I should get a scratch off lottery ticket once I cash this check and use the penny to attempt making a little more money. It seems like a tremendous loss, too, that they would mail a check for a cent when it costs 42 cents to mail a letter acknowledging the flaw in their calculations.
At least one thing is for sure. I now have a penny for my thoughts (at least this thought, anyway)
