Advice Slips

Quite often these days when you go to the hole in the wall to take money out there is a little option that flicks up on the screen. It says: “Would you like an advice slip with this transaction?” You click on “yes”, thinking that’s the sensible thing to do. The machine prints the advice slip, you look at it. It says:

“Don’t spend so much money, always separate your whites from your colours, brush your teeth twice a day, remember to put the cat out before you go to bed and don’t forget your mother’s birthday.”
