David Thorne and the Spider-Payment

Please visit Mr. Thorne's site at     http://www.27bslash6.com

I advise to grab some paper tissues first, for the tears you will laugh!
The following I copied from his site, and hope it is ok.


A word in private... please could you contact me, in an unobtrusive way? I am very intrested in this time travel ability of yours...  My mother-in-law will have her birthday next week and I am a bit low on money, since I still have this broken ancle.
I am not as gifted as you are and therefore I think a drawing of a spider of my own won't satisfy her, as I have to admit, already low... expectations, but there was that jackpot at the local lottery last week ...

Dear Jane,
I do not have any money so am sending you this drawing I did of a spider instead.
I value the drawing at $233.95 so trust that this settles the matter.


Regards, David.

Subject: Whose spider is that?

Dear Jane,
Are you sure this drawing of a spider is the one I sent you? This spider only has seven legs and I do not feel I would have made such an elementary mistake when I drew it.



Regards, David.

Dear David,
Yes it is the same drawing. I copied and pasted it from the email you sent me on the 8th.
David your account is still overdue by the amount of $233.95.
Please make this payment as soon as possible.



Yours sincerely, Jane Gilles

Hello, I am back and have read through your emails and accept that despite missing a leg, that drawing of a spider may indeed be the one I sent you. I realise with hindsight that it is possible you rejected the drawing of a spider due to this obvious limb ommission but did not point it out in an effort to avoid hurting my feelings. As such, I am sending you a revised drawing with the correct number of legs as full payment for any amount outstanding. I trust this will bring the matter to a conclusion.

Regards, David.

I understand and will definitely make a payment this week if I remember. As you have not accepted my second drawing as payment, please return the drawing to me as soon as possible. It was silly of me to assume I could provide you with something of completely no value whatsoever, waste your time and then attach such a large amount to it.

Regards, David.
