Oh I am scary when I write...well, a little.

Well so much for the juicy and fun stories I had planned to write about my time with the psychiatrist. I got a phone call today from him, prompted in part by my text message inviting him out this weekend, to say that his "situation had changed", and let us just "leave it at that".

Pissed off was my initial reaction. Partly with him, and partly with the dating agency that set us up. I have paid good money, fine money, exorbitant money even, for this company to find me suitable men to date. And when the last two that they have set me up with have proven to be either outright duds, or clearly about to get involved with someone else - it does piss me off to waste both my time and money.

So I sent the agency a terse letter voicing my disappointment in their service. Well, at least I thought it was terse until I sent a copy of it to Ho. I thought it was direct and implied my anger and extreme "pissed-off-ed-ness" (ok, not a word, but you get the idea). Apparently, Ho thought it sounded quite polite.

Shit. Next time I need to write a letter of that nature, I think I might have to out-source. Offers for this job are most welcome.

Truly everyone, it was very polite. I was expecting the recipient to have been ripped a new one. But no, it was to the point, certainly, but rather restrained.

Off to dance camp soon!

What a shit. I HATE that guy.

Start with 'Dear cunts...' and take it from there. It sets a platform from which you may balance all subsequent comments.

I agree with Perseus, sets the scene immediately.

Cath, I would love to be your letter writer, I have had many a success in voicing my disappointment with an organisation, government body and the like, a good one to drop is the ombudsman (if there is one for dating agencies, i'm not sure...)
Keep up the writing, I need all your detail and I will try my network for you. The blogging dating agency at work...!

Gosh, I feel for you. I am a pretty good letter writer and belligerent is my middle name if you ever need any help.

Owen is right, you need to drop the correct Authority, I would go Consumer Affairs and Minister for Consumer Affairs; and if necessary, A Current Affair; Today Tonight; Neil Mitchell; Derryn Hinch; etc, etc

Well I would be useless at it...but I feel very very annoyed at this man for doing that. Pompous ass. "let's just leave it at that."
could he be anymore patronising?!!!

you have the right to knit a voodoo doll in his likeness and stab pins into his groin.
