unnamedour accounting department
has contacted you numerous times
regarding your account
for example
on all your birthdays
right after your graduation
from college
your first christmas alone
we even sent you postcards
during staff vacations
a policy not normal
but in your case
we made an exception
this is your final notice
but you need not respond
we have determined that you
were a bad investment
so we’re writing your debt off
this is just our way of saying
is over
don’t bother to call
the account
is closed
