In lighter vein

One heavy annual report

A shareholder made a case against ‘heavy’ annual reports at the Commercial Bank AGM this week, prompting laughter from the participants. “This is very heavy annual report which is delivered by the Postal Department.

The postman always complains that it is very heavy as there are two more residents down my lane who he has to deliver the reports to,” the shareholder pointed out to Chairman Mahendra Amarasuriya.

He suggested that perhaps the Commercial Bank can deploy a staff member to deliver these annual reports to the shareholders within Colombo city. When Amarasuriya politely declined the request saying that will be discriminating the shareholders who are not in Colombo, he suggested employing a courier service.
