Paying Dues

“The celebrated German poet Friedrich Schiller,” reports BBC, “dead for more than 200 years, has been sent reminders that he should pay his TV and radio licence fee… With the annual fee of about 200 euros (£157) unpaid since 1805 Schiller would owe more than 40,000 euros.”

“Three days after their suicides were discovered,” reports DNA, “recovery agents are still chasing the Nair siblings. Unaware that Suchitra, 46, and Sudhir, 42, committed suicide after killing their parents at their Raheja Estate apartment in Borivli, recovery agents and bank officials have been constantly calling up with repayment reminders.”

One funny story, one sad story. Such it goes.
