Overheard #7

“Write out a check for $73 to Janice. She paid Carole. I don’t know. Because Carole needed her money, apparently. I don’t know either. It drives me nuts. I told her, ‘Don’t ever do this again. That’s Johnny’s responsibility to pay it.’ I said, ‘What did he buy for $73?’ A shirt, apparently. ‘A shirt?’ I said. ‘What kind of shirt do you buy for 73 freakin’ dollars?’ So that’s the scoop.”
