A LITTLE EXTRA…

Greedy?

greedyMy son offered to give me all of his money so he wouldn’t have to take a bath yesterday. All of his money actually exceeds $57.  So, being the greedy bastard that I am, I said yes.  However, when it was time for him to pay up he had a change of heart and realized it was a bad deal.  “But we had a verbal contract,” I said.  Being 6 years old he didn’t get the concept of contracts and since I used to practice contract law I went into detail about the ins and outs of the offer, the acceptance, and most importantly breach.  But he still refused to go through with the contract, can you believe that?!  I was dead set on suing but then he agreed to take a bath so I figured my damages were minimal.
