Should I write back and tell them that yes, Lisa Huston IS my representative and to please defer to her instructions on the matter?

I had no idea that the British had such terrible grammar. ;)

Also, yes, you should write back and ask them to defer to her instructions.

Lisa Huston has never let me down before.

And use the same style of grammar that they do!

I think that would actually be too challenging.

Oh that? That's the Queen's English. Little known fact.

Meanwhile, "information's" XD lawl

At least you have all her information's.

I totally vote that you do that. Love it.

Ugh.

You can have a ton of fun with these people, though. I did some correspondance with one a while back.

Be sure to look at the letters archive!

I like how they offer you GBP at the top of the letter and J's at the bottom. But the same amount. Take the yen! the YEN
