What next!

In an effort to improve its revenue collection, our city council has taken to sending out reminders via SMS, for clients to pay their accounts. On Friday I was in a meeting, with my mobile phone on silent mode, but noticed that a message had come through. So like any good mobile phone user, I could not resist sneaking a look. Well, when I saw this I started laughing and totally disrupted the meeting. I don't know why I found it so funny, but I did.
It is just another example of bureaucratic ineptitude that is becoming so common place here.
