This morning I met the finance guy again, and no sooner had we sat down than my mobile rang again. A gentleman from American Express. 'Are you trying to sell me a credit card?' I ask. Yes, he says. 'Good day to you'.
Amazing. Actually, I wouldn't mind a credit card for emergencies and Interweb purchases, but the banks here won't give me one because I own a small business, and they consider this too much of a risk. Ironically my employees can get cards, because they are paid a regular salary. Bizarre.
