    Thanks for those retreaded tires for my car, for my Birthday present. And then again, reminding me of that gift on the following Christmas, and the next birthday after that, and for my Birthday and Christmas the following year after that too. Whew, was I glad when you finally forgot about those tires. I was afraid they were going to be my present for life!

    Hey Pup! Remember that digital clock you asked me to “fix?” You know, the one with the 3″ tall digital display? I spent $142 bucks in 1977 and probably a month of time to design, buy, build and fit the electronics inside, in order to get it working. I was so proud of that effort!

    Did you ever realize I delivered newspapers for nearly 6 months to raise the money to do that project for you? And after I gave it to you, based on your initial promise to “pay whatever it costs..” with my pile of receipts. Can you even imagine how it felt to a 14 year old boy to hear you say: “Oh, that’s too expensive, I can buy a new one for $12, so I’ll give you $14…” Then push me out your door, when I was rendered speechless?

    So since you owed me 142 but actually paid me 14, you still owe me: $142 – $14 = $128. But wait! There has been 3.95% inflation since 1977, so that’s a current market rate of $496.32 today. And that’s if I DON’T charge you interest. So pay up!
