Ode To The Ugly Check Card

Always there...gleaming in your ugly orange and yellow. The ugly step-child to the pretty, sparkly ~real~ credit cards. Though far from beautiful, you never failed to provide the necessities of life. You lost my signature time and time again, yet you were always willing to step up to receive my ink. Your pretty bird lost its lustre, but you never lost your edge. Thank you, dear ugly check card, for your many years of service. I apologize for those who have wronged your number and taken you from us. They know not what they have done.
