A Moving Experience
I've found a cool apartment! Okay, okay'so it's not perfect. Just a few bugs. I mean literally! First expense? An exterminator! Is it worth the cash? Well, I can't afford a more expensive place, so a one-time (please!) cash outlay should be okay. Maybe just a can of 'Raid?'
I need a way to move my stuff. Daddy, can I borrow your truck? You don't have one? Why not? Do you want one? I'll help you pick it out! Well, it was just a suggestion. No need to get all bent out of shape! I guess I'd better call the truck rental places. What do you mean - $200 - PLUS mileage? AND Gas? Good grief!
While I'm on the phone I'll call the utility and phone companies. Yes, I know I haven't used your services before. No, I don't have a credit card; this is my first place. You want what? A $100 deposit? For EACH? Holy cow - do you people have a license to steal?
Daddy, I need $500 for moving expenses! I used all my money for the first and last months rent AND the damage deposit. Well, how was I to know this was going to be so expensive? Sell something? Daaaaad - I NEED my TV!
Boy, this place is pretty empty. Maybe I should buy a couch and a chair. Nah - I have my bed. That - ll be good enough. I don't need a table; I'll just use this box.
Renters Insurance? I don't think so! What do I have to insure?
Just got my first phone call! I'd love to come to your party! Daddy, I need a car. Because it's too far to walk to work, that's why. Umm, Daddy - there's car insurance too! Thanks, Dad - you're the best! And gas? I didn't think so -
Time for dinner. Let's look in these boxes. Oh, No! No dishes or pans. No FOOD!
