Why I hate reading formal letters

I have a pile of letters coming in from banks, insurance and school. I’m just leaving it there on my letter tray. I glance at them every day and blissfully ignore them. I especially hate it when they wrote a bunch of text for formality’s sake when all they want to say is: “Look, you need to pay XXX GBP263, do it before October or else.”

Cut the corporate crap, just go straight to the point. Or underline the main point or something. I’m always left transcoding from Formal to Human.

I wish they would just email me in a couple of sentence. Save those papers; I am not an accounting major. Kthxbai!

  1. Yeah, the whole bunch of crap just to tell you a short message.

    I hate the one part which says, “Receipt No. 1234, for your retention please.”

    I can’t figure out why they must say the word, please.
