I deposited through my bank (Bank of America - really big bank in the states) straight to my bank account. I wanted to deposit it through the ATM, but it wouldn't let me, because it was an international check (From Canada
). I just got off of work, so I was still in some nice work pants and a tie, but no jacket. The lady clerk didn't give me any questions about it, so either they weren't concerned with it or I'm just that stunning to look at in conversation (I bet the latter).
