Aw, remember when he was young and cute? And didn’t ask for much. Sigh.
Jack: You owe me $5.00.
me: For what?
Jack: My allowance. You forgot it last week. And this week. So… $10.
me: Wait, didn’t you use your allowance to pay for part of something I bought you last week?
Jack: Oh, and you owe me $20 for helping rake the leaves.
me: But you never finished. AND, I helped you so you didn’t really do all the raking I asked you to do.
Jack: BUT, I was going to do it AND I didn’t ask you to help me, AND you decided on your own to help AND we agreed it was $20. Can I have it now?
me: Go brush your teeth.
