Just not my month John G

What can you do ? This old man came into the yard with his

lawn mower carb in a bag. " my son tried to fix it but can't remember how to put it back together ". I assembeled it and set the float about 15 mins. " how much do i owe you ? " he said. Thinking repeat buisness i said don't worry about it. " i have to pay you something " . he says.

This went on for about 5 mins. I then said $10.00. I thought this guy had a coronary. " Good christ, your charging an old man $10.00 for this "? What the hell can you do ? You can't win no mater what you try. Here is the

thing out here. They will bring you $40.00 worth of liquer

but won't pay you $10.00. I love liquer but you can't take

that to SafeWay for bread and milk. So you think you have it bad. I'll never see that guy again. I hope.

They may offer to pay you what you think is $40 of liquor but they probably distilled it themselves in the chicken shed. Never mind drinking it you could probably drive your car 500 miles off it.

It's government liquer but don't drink their wine. That's
home brew at it's finest. That stuff will power a jet turbine. Good old choke cherry wine. It's actually pretty
damn good. Just don't get drunk on it. Ever had a 48 hour hang over ? :)

Gee, $10? I figure if I ask someone "what time is it" I own at least that much. The old guy remembers when $2.50 an hour was good pay, I'm that old too :(
