Standard's are slipping
Got the usual note from a new firm, which is no big surprise and no sorrow. He still owes us money, has a company up the proverbial creek with no sign of any paddle and is very prone to failing to turn up when he fixes to drop in. Two sources of entertainment. The new firm is Fred's Bookeeping Services and clearly don't know the old quiz question - what's the only word in English with three double letters in succession. I checked their website and other PR stuff which also is missing a second k. I hope they have a nice time keeping all those boos.
The second thing is that their letter appears to be a standard takeover letter but instead of asking for reasons, professional or otherwise, blah blah. But if you look carefully it asks if there is any information that would influence their decision to accept the appointment. Not sure if that's a fishing trip to ask if he pays his bills. Of course it's academic, they get authority to act and nothing else until I've been paid. But am I seeing things that aren't there and this is a commonplace phrasing for some firms - even ones that can spell?
