About late payment...

A customer sent an order to a distributor for a large amount of goods, totaling a great deal of money.

The distributor noted that the previous bill hadn't been paid.

The collections manager left a voice-mail for them saying "We can't ship your new order until you pay for the last one."

The next day the collections manager received a collect phone call.

The voice at the other end of the line said,

"Please cancel the order. We can't wait that long."
