bulletCase: "The amateur boxer who won't quit."
 
Dear Mr. Peppino,
 
Hello, Sir. How are you?
My name is Angela Ragusa and I live in Los Angeles, California. I have a small problem with my boyfriend who I love very much but will not listen to me when I explain things to him for his own good.
 
My boyfriend, Sergio, is 3rd generation Italian, loves everything Italian and loves to box. He is an amateur boxer who has gotten not too far in theWhat you look like without enough respect! circuit here in LA. The problem is he wants to keep going instead of calling it quits. I really want him to stop and go back to working with his dad who owns a small construction company (his dad also agrees with me). But he won't listen to me because he throws this thing that he's doing it all for me. It's a whole big ego trip and it bothers me a lot!
 
Can you please convince him to quit? He'll be real shocked if he gets this letter from Sicily because he's a huge Sopranos fan! Have you ever heard of this show?
 
Thanks! Beso!
 
Angela

Dear Rocky,
 
Buon Giorno! Come stai?
 
Angela has brought to our attention here at our offices in Corleone that you are still continuing your incredible amateur boxing career instead of throwing in the towel, indefinitely!
 
We have carefully studied your case and we have come to a conclusion. We understand what the cause of your problem is.
 
You have this drive to make sure your cranium is in constant contact with some pressure. There are many things you can do to satisfy this drive without having to go boxing. We advise you do the following:

* When you wake up in the morning, get out of bed, head first; just slam it on to the floor.

* Take a few steps and throw yourself down the stairs; make sure you land on your head.

* Get in the shower and slam the shower glass door into your head.

* Turn on the shower full hot so that you'll get scalding marks on your head.

* Go have breakfast and smack yourself in the head with your cereal spoon.

Well, Mr. Rocky, we hope this valuable advice from our insurance company will guide you towards the right path in life. And for your information, the definition of an amateur boxer is a guy who gets in a ring for free and lets other guys beat him over the head.

Thank you and Tanti Saluti da Corleone!

Don Peppino
