Man writes check on 2-ply toilet paper

BINGHAMTON, N.Y. - 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.

Funny! He could pay it in pennies.

Unfoirtunately, I think he only makes the situation worse for himself by doing stuff like that. (The toilet paper, and possibly paying with pennies.)

He should pay the bill in full using a regular check, and then buy himself a six-pack on the way home. Hopefully by morning the memory of it will be faded.
