Along The Dark Alley
Two lawyers are going along the dark alley. Suddenly robbers jump out of the corner and demand money. Nowhere to go... the two lawyers take out their wallets and one says to another:
- Willy, do you remember that I owed you 200 dollars? So, I give them back before witnesses.
Getting the Coin Out
Ragil was playing with a coin when he by accident swallowed it. He went crying to his mom, choking on the coin. They took him to a doctor, who said that the coin was impossible to remove without surgery.
They consulted a specialist who was of the same opinion.
Then came a man who said that he could get the money out in a jiffy. He turned Ragil upside down and patted him with great precision on the back of neck and, sure enough, the coin rolled out.
Everyone was amazed. The father said " you must be an expert!"
The man replied." No, sir, I'm just a debt collector."
In A Small Midwestern Town
A wholesaler in North East sent a letter to the postmaster of a small Midwestern town. He asked for the name of an honest lawyer who would take a collection case against a local debtor who had refused to pay for a shipment of the wholesaler’s goods. He got this reply:
Dear Sir: I am the postmaster of this village and received your letter. I am also an honest lawyer and ordinarily would be pleased to accept a case against a local debtor.
In this case, however, I also happen to be the person you sold those crummy goods to. I received your demand to pay and refused to honor it. I am also the banker you sent the draft to draw on the merchant, and I sent that back with a note stating that the merchant had refused to pay.
If I were not, for the time being, substituting for the pastor of our local church, I would tell you just what I thought of your claim.
The Debt Of A Poor Man
Mulla Nasredin knocked at a neighbors door and said: "Brother, I am collecting to pay the debt of a poor man who cannot meet his obligations."
" Very laudable," said the neighbor, and gave him a coin. "Who is the person?"
"Me," said Nasredin, as he hurried away.
A few weeks later he was at the door of the same neighbor again.
"I suppose you are calling about a debt," said the now-cynical neighbor.
"I am." said Mulla.
"I suppose someone can't pay a debt, and you want a contribution?"
"This is so."
"I suppose it is you who owe the money?" Said the neighbor.
"Not this time." said Mulla
"Well, I am glad to hear it. Take this contribution."
Nasredin put the money in his wallet as he was rapidly walking away.
"Just one thing, Mulla. What prompts your humanitarian sentiments in this particular case?"
"Ah, you see,... I am the Creditor!!"
The Good Collector
Jerry Jones applied to a debt-collecting agency for a job, even though he had no experience.
He was very intense, so the manager gave him a tough account with the promise that if he collected, he'd get the job.
Two hours later, Jerry returned – with the full amount!
"Amazing!" said the manager. "How on earth did you manage that?"
"Easy," replied Jerry, "I told him that if he didn't pay up, I'd tell all his other creditors he'd paid us."
