I would imagine when anyone sends a person an overdue bill that they would in return send this attached picture as if to flip them off........with 7 legs.

I used the internet to get insurance quotes and starting getting collection notices.....again. I thought I would have 7 years to wait these out, ( I'm on disability) but it doesn't really work that way.

Also, the state these debts were made is in Illinois and that's 10 years NOT 7.

LOL!

This is what I call pure genius.


Honestly, who can reject a drawing of a spider as a payment for a utility bill?

Party at Appartment 3

Dear Matthew,
Thankyou for the party invite. At first glance I thought it may be a child's party what with it being vibrant and having balloons but I realise you probably did your best with what little tools were available. I wouldn't miss it for the world. What time would you like me there?

Regards, David.

Hi David
Sorry the note was just to let you know that we might be a bit loud that night. The house warming is really just for friends and family but you can drop past for a beer if you like.
Cheers Matthew

Thanks Matthew,
Including me in your list of friends and family means a lot. You and I don't tend to have long discussions when we meet in the hallway and I plan to put a stop to that. Next time we bump into each other I intend to have a very long conversation with you and I am sure you are looking forward to that as much as I am. I have told my friend Ross that you are having a party and he is as excited as I am. Do you want us to bring anything or will everything be provided?

Regards, David.

Hi David

Cheers Matthew

Dear Matthew,
I can appreciate that, our apartments are not very large are they? I myself like to go for a jog every night to keep fit but fear leaving the house so I have to jog on the spot taking very small steps with my arms straight down. I understand the problems of space restrictions all too well. If you would like to store some of your furniture at my place during the party you are quite welcome to - if we move your cane furniture into my spare room for the night and scatter cushions on the ground, that would provide a lot more seating and create a cozy atmosphere at the same time. I have a mirror ball that you can borrow. I have told Ross not to invite anyone else due to the space constraints so it will just be us two and my other friend Simon. When I told Simon that Ross and I were going to a party he became quite angry that I had not invited him as well so I really didn't have any choice as he can become quite violent. Sometimes I am afraid to even be in the same room as him. So just myself Ross and Simon. Simon's girlfriend has a work function on that night but might come along after that if she can get a lift with friends.

Regards, David.

Wtf? Nobody can come to the houswarming party it is just for friends and family. I dont even know these people. How do you know I have cane furniture? Are you the guy in apartment 1?

Hi Matthew,
I understand it is an exclusive party and I appreciate you trusting my judgement on who to bring. I just assumed you have cane furniture, doesn't everybody? Cane is possibly one of the most renewable natural resources we have after plastic, it is not only strong but lightweight and attractive. Every item in my apartment is made of cane, including my television. It looks like the one from Gilligan's Island but is in colour of course. Do you remember that episode where a robot came to the island? That was the best one in my opinion. I always preferred Mary Anne to Ginger, same with Flintstones - I found Betty much more attractive than Wilma but then I am not really keen on redheads at all. They have freckles all over their body did you know? It's the ones on their back and shoulders that creep me out the most.

Anyway, Ross rang me today all excited about the party and asked me what the theme is, I told him that I don't think there is a theme and we discussed it and feel that it should be an eighties themed party. I have a white suit and projector and am coming as Nik Kershaw. I have made a looping tape of 'wouldn't it be good' to play as I am sure you will agree that this song rocks and has stood the test of time well. I am in the process of redesigning your invites appropriately and will get a few hundred of them printed off later today. I will have to ask you for the money for this as print cartridges for my Epson are pretty expensive. They stopped making this model a month after I bought it and I have to get the cartridges sent from China. Around $120 should cover it. You can just pop the money in my letter box if I don't see you before tonight.

Regards, David.

Hello Matthew,
I agree that it is not very convenient and must admit that when I first received your invitation I was perplexed that it was on a Sunday night but who am I to judge. No, I am in apartment 3B. Our bedroom walls are touching so when we are sleeping our heads are only a few feet apart. If I put my ear to the wall I can hear you. I also agree with you that having a particular theme for your party may not be the best choice, it makes more sense to leave it open as a generic fancy dress party, that way everyone can come dressed in whatever they want. Once, I went to a party in a bear outfit which worked out well as it was freezing and I was the only one warm. As it won't be cold the night of your party, I have decided to come as a Ninja. I think it would be really good if you dressed as a ninja as well and we could perform a martial arts display for the other guests. I have real swords and will bring them. If you need help with your costume let me know, I have made mine by wrapping a black t-shirt around my face with a hooded jacket and cut finger holes in black socks for the gloves. I do not have any black pants so will spray paint my legs on the night.

It is a little hard to breathe in the costume so I will need you to keep the window open during the party to provide good air circulation. Actually, I just had a thought, how awesome would it be if I arrived 'through' the window like a real ninja. We should definitely do that. I just measured the distance between our balconies and I should be able to jump it. I once leaped across a creek that was over five metres wide and almost made it.

Also, you mentioned in your invitation that if there was anything I needed, to let you know. My car is going in for a service next week and I was wondering, seeing as we are good friends now, if it would be ok to borrow yours on that day. I hate catching the bus as they are full of poor people who don't own cars.

Regards, David.

WTF? No you cant borrow my car and there is no #ing 3B. I reckon you are that guy from Apartment 1. You are not coming to my house warming and you are not bringing any of your friends. What the # is wrong with you??? The only people invited are friends and family I told you that. It is just drinks there is no #ing fancy dress and only people i know are coming! I dont want to be rude but jesus #ing christ man.

Hello Matthew,
I have been away since Thursday so have not been able to check my email from home. Flying back late today in time for the party and just wanted to say that we are really looking forward to it. Will probably get there around eleven or twelve, just when it starts to liven up. Simon's girlfriend Cathy's work function was cancelled so she can make it afterall which is good news. She will probably have a few friends with her so they will take the mini van. Also, I have arranged a Piñata.

Regards, David.

Just fantastic.

Kudos to the man who drew the spider.

And OP.

S&F, because, this points out the stupidity of the current (pun intended) situation of the economy.

What I love about this is that it shows the power that a body such as a government has to declare a piece of paper legal tender even though it is worthless and really doesn't exist. So why not a spider with 7 legs or a shoe lace? Really it is all the same.

Money is a fabricated means of control but in reality it doesn't exist. They have made us slaves to something that keeps us within their power of control and subjection.

I think more of us should be applying this brilliant tactic all over the world. This legal tender we call money is not even backed up by gold anymore. That is to say that if you wanted to trade your paper money for 'gold' 'they' wouldn't let you because it's just paper.

The gold you ask? Well we all know who is keeping that for a rainy day.

Dear OmegaPoint!
I am thrilled at your post!
Its second to nome!
There is also a great one here: Right at the bottom of the page!

Take care!

Also some advice from my friend David:




Survival Tip #2
Do not eat the bright purple mushrooms. Once while lost, I found and ate some bright purple mushrooms figuring such a friendly colour could not possibly be dangerous. A short time later, a beetle and I discussed the differences between the director's cut of Bladerunner and the cinematic release. Always remember that bark is an excellent source of nutrition and can be prepared simply by marinating overnight and cooking for twenty minutes in a preheated oven at 240 degrees celcius.

Things that should not be eaten:
Bright purple mushrooms
Rocks
Cha-Chi's Mexican Restaurant food
Wasps


Thank you! Take care!

"Dear Jane, Are you sure this drawing of a spider is the one I sent you? This spider only has seven legs and I do not feel I would have made such an elementary mistake when I drew it."


Oh my god, I just peed.

"can I please have my picture back"
"Attached Photo"

Thanks for the laughs!

I blew Mountain Dew out of my nose, all over my keyboard and monitor. As I realize that this is not your problem OP, I trust that you actually do feel responsible for the damage and will send payment for a new monitor asap. This one is now smoking and about to go out.
The keyboard seems to bbbbbbbbbe wwwwooorrrrrkkking okay with a few sticking keys, but that is okay, I will attempt to clean it myself and let you know how much it costs. lol

Sorry, I couldn't resist adding to the humor a bit. S&F

How did he get the email though in the first place?
Is there some kind of Line in the apartment block linking all the residents together?
Does everyone who lives there have eachothers email?

Why would anyone pay 15k for a picture made in Microsoft paint in 1 minute? How would you even advertise the sale of the drawing without including it as a picture? The scenario was funny and clever but it's really annoying that some moron out there with 15k to waste bought that lousy drawing. How many of us actually work for living - what did you do honestly earn a similar amount?

The OP was hilarious.
Love the idea of the fly drawing as payment, too.

in lei of, looks like a typo for 'in lieu of' (instead of, in the place of) Lieu is 'place' in French.

and here's the real reason he got into that corresondance with his new neighbor.



A few weeks ago, a guy moved into the apartment across from me. I know little about him apart from the fact that he owns cane furniture as I saw the delivery guys carry it up. I bumped into him on the stairs once and he said hello but I cannot be friends with someone that owns cane furniture so I pretended I had a turtle to feed or something.

Last week when I checked my mailbox, I found that my new neighbour had left me a note stating that he was having a party and to let him know if the noise was too loud.

The problem I have with the note is not that he was having a party and didn't invite me, it was that he selected a vibrant background of balloons, effectively stating that his party was going to be vibrant and possibly have balloons and that I couldn't come.

If I was writing a note to my neighbours saying that I was going to have a party but none of them could come, I would not add photos of ecstasy tablets, beer and gratuitous shots of Lucius going down on men to show them what they are missing out on, I would make it clean and simple, possibly even sombre, so they didn't think 'you prick'.

This is the funniest post I've read since DOADOA posted about putting rockets on cats. Great post, btw.

Genius. Utterly genius. I laughed pretty hard after reading all the replies.

You can take it another way to. Seeing as she said lei currancy...well, the American dollar is a fiat currency. What's the difference?

We have our money and believe to to be worth something. In actuality, its worthless. Only worth the value printed on it. Not backed by say, gold.



She actually said "in lei of currency" which was obviously a typo for "in lieu" of currency.

If you really think about it though, gold isn't backed by anything either. It has value in the sense that people want it for jewelry and stuff, but that still means it's only worth as much as people think it is, just like the dollar. Right?

Out of curiosity why do you think that people that are broken are automatically stupid?

It makes no sense to me. It means absolutely nothing what so ever and they are completely unrelated as far as I can see.

There are a lot of dumb people that make money and lots of clever people that starve to death. Kind of a stupid way to tag people if you ask me, specially since you're not aware of the whole picture about broken people lives.

Just plain stupid, sorry.
