that's a scary word. it means "summons," & we're all to familiar with it, be it from the police, road transport or internal revenue. usually it implies that some form of payment is outstanding & due.
it's also used when we receive wedding invitations. this may be from a friendly party but the outcome is nevertheless identical - a payment is in order.
i just received one last week.....
this is to attend court as a prosecution witness. someone from the hospital had used my name to pilfer stuff. so, in addition to getting the guilty party charged for wrongdoing, it's also to clear my name.
i just hope to defence counsel don't tear me to pieces 1st!!
