Today I've finally had a free moment to write the check per your 2 requests and after having had to make numerous phone calls to Thomas Petroleum and my bank. After the calls, where I finally was able to reach the right people at the two previous named entities, your request was further delayed by my having to wait for them to do their research and to call me back.
Therefore, you will find enclosed a check for $23.93 made out to your company, Telecheck, to replace the check #6639 for the above amount that I paid to Barton Stop & Shop at Barton, Arkansas on or about February 21, 2006.
Please forgive me for the delay in this manner since I am not used to receiving strange phone calls from men with strong accents who I barely understand but finally figure out are asking for money and information concerning my bank account which there was no way in hell I was giving out! Since I knew, beyond a doubt, that there was sufficient funds in my bank account to cover the above amount, I was very surprised when your representative treated this matter as though it were my problem, because Sir, I'm not the dumbass that can't type in a routing and account number properly for an electronic transaction. I would also like to remind you, as I reminded the fine folks at Barton Stop and Shop, and their father company, Thomas Petroleum, I do business with them, not some foreigner, who barely speaks English, in City of Industry, California.
Now, I figure it took me about 1.5 hours to handle this matter for you and my time is worth $25.00 per hour this time of the year. So please consider this as your invoice for $37.50. This includes my time on the telephone to research this matter as well as the half a pad of sticky notes it took to remind myself to send this check. Please note that I'm foregoing the amount for the envelope and postage.
My terms are 30 days from the receipt of this invoice.
