Robin’s 2 cents.

Two old ladies Dolly and Ruby were talking about their families. Dolly said, “Each year I send my family a card with a generous cheque in it. I never hear from them… never receive a thank you message.”

Ruby replied, “I too send my family a very generous cheque. I hear from them within a week after they receive it. In fact they pay me a personal visit.”

“WOW” How come?” remarked Dolly.

“Very simple solution… I don’t sign the cheque.”
