The Cheque Giver is a mid-lifed woman who gives out cheques to people working as Mall Santas at the Springfield Mall on Christmas Eve. She isn't very nice as she doesn't have any mercy for the unwittingly low-payed Mall Santas that she pays. She knows exactly why they are only paid $13 and has memorized it to remind the Mall Santas who attended Santa School. She gives Barney Gumble and Homer Simpson their cheques before closing down. It is unknown if she has another job or residency throughout Springfield.
