Karma...

A friend was playing a Tulsa flea-market this weekend with
a couple grind shows. It was hot and the curiosity-seekers
were coming in small groups. In one of these small and
infrequent groups a man and his son pushed up to the show’s
attendant and handed her the admission, rushing in to see the
two-headed turtle. When the attendant counted the change
there were two nickels and two pennies…twelve cents.
Admission was fifty cents. The guy owed her eighty-eight cents!

Well, the cheapskate slipped out while she was making change
for some other paying patrons. The attendant wasn’t too happy
but oh well, that’s part of the business. In a few minutes,
she went inside to check on the two-headed turtle and found out
the jerk who had stiffed her had left his cell phone in the show.

About a half hour later the cell phone rings...
“Hello, I think you have my lost phone. Who am I talking to?”
The attendant calmly answers, “The lady you stiffed.”

In a few minutes, the owner of the cell phone shows up.
He’s holding two dollars in his hand.
He hands the attendant the two-bucks.
Without a word she hands him his cell phone.

Karma!

Wouldn't that be $2.12 profit?

I'm not a CPA, but let's see...

Rent, costs for crew, equipment, etc. Insurance...

Probably a 50 cent admission fee is $2.74 too low. So 2.12 is 3.36 in the hole.

It goes to show why this business isn't really profitable. Sad.

And I didn't even include turtle food.

Does each head eat half as much as a single-headed turtle?

Well with my boys, Zack and Mack, Zack is the dominate head and eats more than Mack. Mack likes to hold out for the dried shrimp. That's his favorite.

I think just being from the hottest freakin' state in the union is tough enough.
No offense, but I couldn't live in Texas.

Uh Jim...We all know Rick (or should). The man's a legend and doesn't have to hang a banner sayin' so. Smile

Besides, West didn't come in the swingin' doors guns a blazin' and kickin' the cat either.

But we've come to love you like a brother...hell I even considered adopting your sufferin' ass to smooth over your blanks...you know...sendin' 'care' packages of Muffins and magazines etc like we do for the troops.


Good tale Rick, thanks. What's with all the 2 headed turtles? K-Mart havin' a sale?

Thanks Doug.
