E-mails are amazing
I don’t know about you but I am constantly getting e-mails saying my resume’ is being considered for the ‘Assistant CEO’ position. Or they have received my application for the position as Plan leader, etc. I never open them of course, but I do smile. I laughed out loud today when The subject said, “Our company has picked your resume’ you will be our ‘collections agent’ for the USA. You will receive 10% of all due notes received, contact us immediately for retainer (That was just the subject line).
(Honest I will catch it up next month!)
I looked over at Sherry, can you see that? Let's say I go to Mrs. Jones house to collect the bill, she tells me her story and I give her $20 and leave crying.
I was thinking back on the time my dad knew I had become close friends with a certain man. Dad told me, “Son he is a great guy, you won’t find a more personable guy, BUT please, don’t loan him money or sign any notes.” I still don’t know if that was from experience or not. But one day I received a phone call from my banker. A man is headed to your house to ask you to sign a note. He asked me if you signed the note, would I give him a loan and I said, ‘Of course’.My recommendation is tell him you are over loaded. He said this is just a heads up. I thanked him and hung up.
When my friend came, we joked, laughed and finally he asked, and Yep, I signed. I never made a payment but if I remember right, he was late EVERY PAYMENT.
(We haven't worked this month, the kids are in school.....)
We have had rental property for years. I AM NOT a good land lord. The first house we rented to a single lady with kids for $40 a month. I allowed the bill to get behind nearly $800.(That is almost 2 yrs). Hahahahahah, (Now some single ladies would have deserved it, but this lady was a crook, I mean a real prison deserving crook.)
I would make a great Bill Collector!
On the other hand, Sherry would have fed us dried beans and water for months before she would default on a payment.
This is a picture of a 1956 Mercury Pickup. I never did see one. This is odd.
