    Amy Lee,
    Call the bank. It's much better to be proactive and call them, explain the situation, etc.
    You can't be arrested unless they have tried to collect from you and you have not made any restitution and then it takes several weeks.

    But your best bet is to call your bank and be upfront about it and see if your boss will give you something in writing about not being able to pay you to show them.

    It's better to contact them than to wait and let them contact you.

    Go to the locks of love website (you can google) for their policies, but I believe the ONLY restriction they have is bleached hair.

    Gutmutter: My twin sinister has been praying to be called for jury duty for decades! She thinks it would be interesting to be on a jury and try to determine the verdict by viewing the evidence alone. I actually think she would be very good because she is very detail oriented and doesn't let her emotions (what emotions) get involved.

    Rattus: Glad to hear you have lost some weight albeit not in the most preferred manner. I must say though, appendicitis helped me lose 40 lbs in 8 days! But I wouldn't wish the experience on anyone!

    Duxxy and Amy Lee: I think it's unfair that if you receive a bounced cheque that you have to suffer and it affects your credit by trying to deposit it. A Bank should not arrest you because you are not the one who has written the bad cheque.

    Amy Lee: After you get a new job, you should go to small claims court and put a lien or something against your boss personally and his company so that he pays you what he owes. Keep records and copies of your bounced paycheques. The Sheriff may be able to seize something of his to sell so you can get paid. And your court action will be on record in case anyone else checks into his credit in the future.Good luck!

    MRD, I didn't see the original post that this was in response to, but I've donated hair to Locks of Love and I believe that as long as the hair has NOT been bleached (regular coloring is OK), they'll accept it. They also don't accept dreadlocks. Your donation has to be at least a 10-inch ponytail, though. SO when you go to your hair stylist, he/she will put your hair in a ponytail and cut it off, and give you the ponytail to mail in. (Some salons will even mail it in for you.)

    I actually called in the day I was supposed to show up for jury duty 'cause I wasn't feeling well and wanted to make sure I was OK, so I went to see the doctor. (I was pregnant at the time.) They excused me from jury duty because I had a high-risk pregnancy and a doctor's note saying that I had a high risk pregnancy and needed bed rest. I offered to have my husband drop the note off for them but they said it was fine, and wished me luck with the pregnancy.

    I posted in the wrong place. We were discussing it in the hair thread and I posted the guidlines from the locks of love website so the original question about perms would be answered. Thanks though. I had a momentary brain lapse.


    Amy Lee, they usually do consider your good record and that's why you need to contact them as soon as possible. They are much nicer if you make the initial contact and explain what happened, than if they have to track you down for the restitution. You cannot be arrested just for bouncing a check, but if you don't pay the restitution, then there are steps the people or bank has to go through in order to collect and then turn it over to the authorities.
    I've bounced checks before (it happens to lots of people for lots of reasons-yes it's embarrasing, but you are certainly not the only one in the world that it has happened too) and in one particular case almost 20 years ago, I kept checking with the store I had bounced one too and they kept telling me it hadn't come back yet so I could pay them off in cash. Long story short, there was some kind of screw up and the check didn't go back to the original store I wrote it too and after 6 months, I got a registered letter attempting to collect the debt. It told me in the letter that if I failed to pay it off, at that time, they would take it to the state's attorney.
    So while I don't know the rules where you live, but I do know from my own experience and those of friends, that they cannot arrest you immediately, it takes some time and they will attempt to collect from you first before taking it to court.

    I'm glad to know I'm not the only one who would actually like to be called for jury duty. But I'm a Court Tv (now TRU tv, darnit) and true crime addict.
    I have found the Truth and it doesn't make sense.

    My husband is addicted to Tru tv. I don't mind watching it occasionally, but I have to say that I'm getting over it now. But I do like Dale Hinman (the former Florida Dept. of Law investigator)

    I wouldn't mind jury duty if it wasn't that I had to sit in one place for so long. And the fact that 90% of the cases that have jury trials are not very exciting. I have a friend that is a court reporter and she says that most of the jury cases she's done were for civil things and that the criminal ones are also not all that exciting unless it's a highly publicized sensational murder and those don't come along very often.

    Been interesting reading what that death penalty trial in Atlanta is costing the court system. I can't remember the guys name, but he's the one that escaped from the courthouse and killed a guard before he was re-captured.
    It has bankrupted the court system and has had to be postponed because it was taking money away from other court cases. Already cost something like 5 million and they haven't even gotten through jury selection.

    Re: FORT Koffee Klatch

    That's the Brian Nichols case, MRD; actually, he assaulted the guard who was going to escort him to court, causing severe head damage, but she didn't die. He then killed a judge and a court reporter who were hearing a case, and escaped. Obviously, this part has many witnesses. Authorities are also pretty sure he killed another man whose truck he stole a couple of days later; there were also other carjackings and pistol whippings involved in the rampage. With all the eye witnesses, I can't believe the circus being made of this trial.

    That's right. I couldn't remember all the details. The thing I read was more of an op-ed piece about the defendents right to a good defense and how much that is costing the system as he's indigent and is having to use a public defender. But then it also argued that cases like this ultimately cost a lot of money and that defendents in trials don't always get the same money spent on them, etc. But that fact that it's a high profile case is what is costing so much money too. It sounds like a mess.
