Now, I'm as law-abiding as the next gal (depending on which way you look, that could take on a gamut of degrees), but I found this wording on a mailing insert from outgoing Collector of Revenue Ronald A. Leggett to sound a bit, well, threatening (maybe the fact that it's IN ALL CAPS made me wary?):
"PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT AS OF
MARCH 5, 2007
YOUR COLLECTOR OF REVENUE WILL BE
GREGORY F.X. DALY.
IN ADDITION, PLEASE BE GUIDED ACCORDINGLY BY WELCOMING AND
COOPERATING WITH HIM AS YOU HAVE ME."
(signed, everyone's favorite check recipient)
The reverse is even funnier:
"Thank You For 30 Years of Memories
and Nearly 10 Billion Dollars in Collections"
Dude, we didn't give you the 10 extra-extra-large because we like you: it's the law — I don't think you can put it on your résumé.
