ASBO Club Member - Persona non grata
A man is getting into the shower just as his wife is finishing
up her shower, when the doorbell rings. The wife quickly wraps herself
in a towel and runs downstairs. When she opens the door, there stands
Bob, the next-door neighbour. Before she says a word, Bob says, "I'll
give you £800 to drop that towel," After thinking for a moment, the
drops her towel and stands naked in front of Bob. After a few seconds,
Bob hands her £800 dollars and leaves. The woman wraps back up in
the towel and goes back upstairs. When she gets to the bathroom, her
husband asks, "Who was that?" "It was Bob the next door neighbour," she
replies. "Great!" the husband says, "did he say anything about the £800
he owes me?"

Moral of the story: If you share critical information pertaining
to credit and risk with your shareholders in time, you may be in a
