Life is getting much too serious, yes? Who doesn't need a daily smile?

Deficit financing

A corporate client placed a rather large order for parts. The distributor, noticing that the previous bill had not yet been paid, instructed his collections department to contact the customer. The collections manager made the call. Not being able to reach the accounting department, he left a voice-mail message: "We can't ship your new order until you pay for the last one."

The next day, a collect telephone call came from the client: "Please cancel the order. We can't wait that long."
