Dear Carolyn: My sister sent my grade-school child a check as a gift. We deposited it four weeks later, and it bounced because the account was closed.
Its a small sum, $25, and the charge against my childs account was another $10. This is not about the money or any issues I have with my sister. She made a mistake, no big deal. Im curious what the general rule is. I would want to know so I could correct it, but is there an etiquette standard?
My sister is going through a divorce. We have a good relationship. Her financial situation is rather unknown to me, but not as solid as mine. Do I contact her or just cover it out of my pocket?
