My coworker found this on her car last night

It's on plain copy paper and cropped crookedly with scissors



Does it get any more pathetic?

Why do I get this idea that perhaps Ryan wrote that letter.

IMO, thats a tad creepy. 1) If that's her withdrawal receipt he could have been watching her. 2) He knows what he car looks like.

No worries....it's a fake. It's obviously a fake joke that somebody made up. Crono probably found it online.

lol. I went dumpster diving and found a whole spool of actual ATM reciept paper with a prominent local bank branding all over it. I used an inkjet printer and a dot-matrix font with a deep navy blue color to print some very genuine-looking thermal print receipts with absurd balances. I would never try to use one to write a lust letter though.

That is truly pathetic.

Someone with recording capabilities should call Mel pretending to be with the IRS and is checking on all large account holders, an audit is forthcoming, etc etc
Then post the mp3.

btw, Tom Leykis tells his minions to do this receipt gag.

No, it's an actual scheme to pick up women propagated by Leykis.

A rather pathetic one, too.

And the slip of paper is a REAL one my coworker found on her car last night and showed me this morning.

C'mon man, I woudn't ***** you, you're my favorite turd.



There's me, and there's the slip proudly displayed on the company cork board.

Haha, I'm glad you didn't ask me to prove the falcon incident was real.

"Okay, the damn thing pecked my eyes out, happy now!?"

I'm going to let this sit for a while until he drops a few more of these off, that way he can't deduce that the number propagated through my coworker.

It's kinda my fault for not blanking out his phone number, but can you all please not call the number? cydisc has already verified it's an authentic cell phone number.

Thanks.
