NatWest chase dog called Noodles for overdraft payment

by | 16th, November 2012

BANKS, as we know, are joyless, recession-causing imbeciles. Those delightful swine at NatWest are showing this off with aplomb at the minute, chasing a dog called Noodles for money.


Rupert Chapman of Leicestershire was ten shades of puzzled when he got a letter from NatWest addressed to ‘Noodles the Dog’, informing the animal that he had gone into his overdraft. Naturally, the mighty Rupert Chapman decided to reply to NatWest with a letter from his own dog Charley.

The letter said:

“I have searched every nook and cranny in the house in an attempt to find sufficient funds to repay you. I have found four drachma and 24 pesetas behind the toilet pedestal and under the stairs. I was wondering whether this would meet your needs?”

It continued:

“I am sorry I do not have a forwarding address and Noodles hasn’t left any leads. I could check things out on the night chorus but frankly don’t wish to bring bad fortune on my predecessor, who has done such a good job of keeping the neighbour’s cats at bay.”

Chapman told the The Leicester Mercury:

“When the letter came it was addressed to Noodles the Dog – it was clearly someone who was in the house before – and I had no idea what it could be. We moved in in August and the previous people had rented and I didn’t know who they were, so I thought it would be fitting to send a reply from Charley.”

A spokesperson for NatWest said:

“The new homeowners do not owe the bank anything. This is the previous tenant’s debt, so they shouldn’t worry about it.”
