Among the many things I should know, but don't are where the routing number and account number are on our checks. Oh I know they're among the numbers at the bottom
of the check, but I'm never sure which number is which. So I was making a payment by phone this morning using an automated system, and because I wasn't sure which number was which, I also went online to find a picture that would show me. I looked at the picture complete with labels,input my numbers and told it to pay. Then I took a closer look at the picture and my check and realized that my checking account number and my check number were reversed. ARGGH! I had to call the company up, admit I was an idiot and work with a human to get it straight. I need to write this information down and save myself from future embarrassment.
