(4:31 PM) | Adam Kotsko:
CheckteaseI am going through one of those periods, so familiar to us all, where I have virtually no money in the bank, but have a considerable amount of money "on the way." Among the sources of forthcoming money is a check from the Illinois Teacher Retirement System, which I paid into while I substitute taught and recently discovered I could cash out. Naturally I was glad when I got an envelope from them in the mail today -- suddenly, an ATM withdrawl would once more be possible for me! No more buying a gallon of milk with the credit card!
Imagine my disappointment, then, when I opened the envelope and found only a notification that they are going to send me a check a week from now.
