Check Not Double-Checked

The lovely client handed me a check for my services. I said “thank you” and put it in my purse.

At the bank, I realized that I couldn’t deposit said check, because she’d merely written xx/oo in the box where the numerals would go (she did spell out the full payment in letters).

Just as I was about to berate myself for not making sure payment was correct before I left the closing, I realized that I was even more unobservant than I originally thought:  the check wasn’t signed, either!

The client apologized profusely when I called, blaming the omission on her age. Since I am about 25 years younger than she is, what’s my excuse?
