January - Joe paid me on the day rent was due. The check that was given to me was written on an account for a bank that doesn't exist anymore. The check was predictably rejected by my bank. Luckily, it was in a lull in my bill paying, so the whole account didn't go rubber.
February - I was paid in cash... but shorted $20.
March - Rent is due tomorrow. In fact, it should already be on its way in the mail. I've just been told that I might get a check tomorrow.
