Re: I've been promoted...........

My Lord if I may congratulate you on your upcoming Birthday celebrations on behalf of the little people.

I also received a card from M&S but in my case it came not with elevation in class but with a sex change!
I am now a Mrs by their records.

Having worked for them for quite a while, I'm amazed you actually received it! - or is it last years?

My Lord, given your recent promotion may I humbly suggest that you shop at Waitrose from now on.

Not being up with the protocols of British aristocracy I'm quite in the dark regarding your sudden elevation to the rank of Swell - please advise as to how you are now to be properly addressed, m'Lord Mark ( hmm, rolls off the tongue rather well, doesn't it ...)
