My mothers daughter


I am my mothers daughter. I have inherited her ability to debt collect. I wasn't sure it was something that was passed through the genes but apparently I was wrong. Perhaps its like a super power inherited through the womb during my all important debt collecting growth moments in utero. If you don't know my mom you are truly missing out. She is 5 foot nothing and full of beans. She use to debt collect when she was pregnant with me. Were talking repossesing cars, beds, houses you name it. She was good at it. Apparently people like to have there stuff taken by a cute, short, little Italian. I have began debt collecting at work. For the past three years no one has wanted the job and it has gone undone for way to long. The strangest thing about all this is I like doing the work. I don't mind calling people up and saying hey you owe us money when can you pay up? I am my mothers daughter.

It's strange what we inherit fronm ou parents. Yesterday I used the phrase for the first time to one of my kids. My mum used to say this all the time to me. "When you have your own house, then you can go to bed whatever time you want, but not in mine." I sounded just like my mother!!

it's amazing how quickly we become our mothers once our children are born.

Ha! When you said debt collecting, I thought you meant you were collecting your own personal debts. And I didn't understand why anyone would be proud of their ability to owe other people large sums of money.

But I get it now. And suddenly I feel compelled to hand over some money ...

I had a customer service job once where I had to do that and I hated it!!! I always felt guilty for telling people to pay up and I tried to do it in the nicest possible way - I'm such a wuss!

I'm doing a pretty good job of collecting debt myself... Oh wait...
