That guy is my new hero.

"I am currently away on leave, travelling through time and will be returning last week."

Poor woman.

Working in collections you get screwball things like this every now and then. Jane actually probablly loved this because it broke the monetany of what she normally deals with. We actually have customers send us savings bonds that have not matured to the full value expecting us to take the future value as payment for their current amount due.

Fantastic. I'm going to acquire some Nortel shares just for this purpose.

The funniest part was realizing when she sent him the first spider back, he changed the subject of his email to "Who's Spider is that".

I've heard that the spider has made in onto ebay and has sold for some rediculous sum. Can anyone confirm?
