What a Charmin Man

Hm....I guess this is one way to express being disgruntled at the water company....


Man Writes Check on 2-Ply Toilet Paper
Mar 27, 9:42 PM (ET)

BINGHAMTON, N.Y. (AP) - An upstate New York man embroiled in a dispute over his water bill is not being allowed to pay off his debt with a check written on toilet paper. Ron Borgna tried to settle his $2,509.66 bill with a check written on floral print, two-ply toilet paper Wednesday. The disagreement began in September 2006 when Borgna received a $422.90 water bill. Borgna claims he was overbilled. With additional charges, penalties and late fees that bill has grown. Binghamton city officials refused to accept the check. After a short argument, Borgna was escorted out of the building.

Borgna says he is appealing the judgment against him in small claims court.


I wonder if the appeal was written on Kleenex and sealed in a paper towel envelope.
