Blast From the Past

In today’s mail, I found a little surprise from my former employer: The proceeds of my retirement plan.

This came rather unexpectedly for two reasons:

1. I cashed out my retirement account when I left the company.

2. I left the company in 1996 — and have moved three times since then.

I’m not one for asking a lot of questions when money just shows up in my mailbox, but given the circumstances thought it best to call the resident expert on retirement plans a.k.a. Honey (who, coincidentally, practices exactly that kind of law).

I’m pretty sure he said it was OK to cash the check, although that was buried in the middle of a lengthy explanation of the hypothetical scenarios that may have led to this little surprise. He’s super smart and great at what he does, but after about two minutes, he starts to sound like Charlie Brown’s teacher to me.

Still, it’s good to know that $55 is mine, all mine.

    Bwahhh..haa..haaa…Charlie Brown’s teacher….I am so glad that this happens to someone else when their husband talks about certain things:)

    I guess it is time to go and buy some more fabric!
