Conversations of Futility

Me:  Do you have any cash left?

Matt:  A little, why?

Me:  I was just asking to see if that’s enough of an allowance.

Matt:  Back up off my money.

Me:  I wasn’t going to take your money…  I just wanted to see if it was enough, not enough, too much…

Matt:  No, it wasn’t enough.  Gimme more.

Me:  You just said you still have some left.  Don’t lie to your wife.  You’re going to hell for that.

Matt:  But I paid cash for the milk, cheese, and tortillas I bought yesterday.

Me:  Why?

Matt:  Because I debited a carton of cigarettes.  I was trying to balance it out.

Me:  I told you that’s what the cash was for.  It’s coming out of next week’s allowance.

Matt:  I’ll go to the ATM and get more.

Me:  I’ll take your debit card.  You’ll never find it.

Matt:  I’ll go to the bank and get a new one.

Me:  Not if I tell them not to.

The End.

    Oh, yes. That was the end. Well, he may have said "you can't do that" or something to that effect but I think it was funnier without it. I'll probably get back at him by debiting lunch today and taking it out of his allowance next week. Because that's how we roll.
