Today we had a very distressed client in our offices complaining that she'd been sent a distressing letter concerning her deceased ex-husband. As the letter contained a fairly large cheque from a life insurance policy I was baffled at why she was so angry. There was talk of lawyers and compensation -usually a sign of madness in my experience.
The cause of her anguish was that the letter was addressed to 'The Executors Of The Estate Of Mr S**** B****'. Why did this cause her such distress? 'because ah never fuckin killed him!' came the reply.
A look at the dictionary and a further five minutes of patient reasoning and all was well with the world again.
