A fax came through this afternoon from a debt collection agency. They were offering their services to us to follow up on slow payers.
Scrawled at the top of the fax page was a handwritten “Thought you might be interested in this.”
There was a very difficult to read signature under that.

Man, I’d be too embarrassed to use that old technique!
