    Dude, That Must Be Some Strong Weed

    | Chicago, USA |

    (Early 1970′s. I make a key for a guy who lost car keys in the mall parking lot.)

    Me: “Well, that will be $10.00 for the key and labor but another key will be only 79 cents.”

    Customer: “Ah, no man, I need my money to get my weed.”

    (A week later, same deal. I have to go out in the rain and make the same guy another key.)

    Me: “Well I’m sure that now you will get an extra key?”

    Customer: “Ah, no man, I need my money to get my weed.”

    (Well I can spot a trend, so I make another key anyway and hang it up in the shop.)

    (Over the next 6 months he is back a dozen times and I just copy the key hanging in the shop and charge him for the lockwork and the key. He never buys a second key.)

    (I guess the weed finally got him.)
