Beggar, yes. Moocher or Scammer, no. Annoying, definitely yes.
Yesterday we received a letter with red letters that said, 'URGENT! THIRD NOTICE!'.
It was an appeal from the ASPCA.
This made me smile, because it reminds me of my vet.
Our vet sends a postcard when our pets' vaccinations are coming due.
And, I usually forget to book the appointment.
A couple of weeks later, the vet sends another letter.
This one says something to the effect of
We recently sent Kiera (the pet
) a letter asking her to book her appointment for her annual check up.
We haven't heard back from her and were wondering if you could find out why she hasn't booked or maybe help her make the appointment..."
Yeah, it's cutesy, but it makes me smile everytime. (Possibly because often ask the dog when she's going to grow opposable thumbs so she can help with chores.
