RANT: How much is too much to write off?

I have to laugh when I get checks or bills for less than a threshold amount.

Today I paid a bill for $2.84. I once received a check for $0.03!

Now considering that it probably cost them guesstimate 25¢ in supplies, 50¢ in postage, 50¢ in return labor, and who knows how much in setting the whole thing up.

I figure they lost money and so did I.

Because the Gooferment and Big Insurance is involved, there’s probably no way to automate the whole thing.


So at what trivial amount do you write things off?
