It was Wimpy (Popeye's friend) "I'll gladly pay you Tuesday for a hamburger today"

Of course there was a sob story that went along with it... one that was too real to be faked but of course I didn't bite.  If you can't afford to celebrate by taking here here, pick up a steak, light the grill and some candles.

The sob story was too unique to post here but it included that they had already put out a deposit (nice size) on another place further away but could not go and place would not refund (guess they were within the cancel policy).  Oh if I only could share, you too would be banging your heads on the wall.

A sob story and a quarter will get you a telephone call at a pay phone in some places. Two quarters in others. Smiling

Sometimes I get the request with "I don't get paid until Friday" excuse, but it's happening far less than when the financial crisis first hit. I think more people are living within their means.

Suggest he celebrate by taking her to Paris. Maybe the airline will wait, and trust him, for their money.
