Attention Beneficiary,

We have negotiated with the Federal Ministry of Finance that your payment totaling $6,100,000.00 be released to you via a custom pin based ATM card with a maximum withdrawal limit of $5,000 a day which is powered by Visa Card and can be used anywhere in the world were you see a Visa Card Logo on the Automatic Teller Machine (ATM). We have advised that this should be the only way at which you are to receive your payment because it is more guaranteed, since over $5 billion was lost on fake check year two (2) 2008.


So, it appears that I am now both $10.6 million and £17 million richer.

Guess I can buy another bottle of Scotch, now. B-)

Now that I think about it... go for it. It is Mother Karma trying compensate you for your persistent efforts at keeping the level of discourse at a level to be recognized as discourse, if that makes any sense. I applaud that.

that we demonstrate our admiration with this small gesture of assistance. Go ahead and book reservations for three -- no, make that six. Nick, you do understand there will be a slight upfront fee in addition to all the reservations and the additional guests, and everything, don't you?

Gotta spend money to make money

Isn't it?

after years of trying, I never could get the "cruel, but fair" thing down. I would work hard at the cruel part, but the fair thing would just not be there. Then I would work at the fair part, but the cruel aspect would be sorely lacking.

But this ... humble cruelty, is something I think I could develop. Thanks Nexus.

In Humble Cruelty I Am Yours -- no, Your Most Humble Cruel Servant,


P.S. When's you're birthday?

"You're Birthday"?

by NexS In reply to Y'know,

If you're pointing that at me, then I'll answer like this:

With your newfound direction, I fear a cruelty would take siege, should I give away such information.


Also, being a Grammar Police - <b>Your</b> as opposed to <b>You're</b>.

I am not possessive enough with my pronouns and they get all contracted.

I think there's a compliment in there, somewhere...

by NickNielsen In reply to Nick,

And I thank you for it.

True karma would be the check in the mailbox, not just in the mail. :-bd

In case anyone wonders about the edit, it was the Comma Police, with a trivial comma.
