just found out that one of our guests checks bounced. it was a wedding gift from my cousin - he brought a guest and gave us a check for $50 with a note that said "please dont' cash it until Aug 27". we didnt cash it until Sept 7..... it bounced and we were charged $12.
I think the right thing for my cousin to do is send a new check and replace the fee.
I am inclined to let it go since I am all about avoiding confrontation and it is an awkward situation and only $12. but if I dont email my cousin about it, my husband will. If anyone is emailing my cousin, I think it should be me since he's from my side of the family, but I'm not good with this kind of thing - not sure what to say in the email. Can you help?
