Laughter the best Medicine

If you’ve ever lent someone money or worked in the Credit or Banking industry, you’ll appreciate this one…

Dear Sir/Madam,

I acknowledge receipt of your letter dated 7 May 2011 in which for the 3rd time, you request that I pay the monies owed to you. I first want you to know that by no means do I dispute my debt and I intend to pay as soon as possible.
However I would like to bring to your attention that you are not my only creditor. I have many more creditors, quite as honorable and important as you, and whom I wish to pay too. That is why, each month, I throw all the names of my creditors into a hat and draw one randomly. The one drawn is paid immediately.

I hope that yours will come out shortly..

Sincerely Yours,


*PS: I regret to inform you that given the harsh and threatening tone of your last letter, you will not be taking part in the next three draws*.
