Oh yes. You owe me a little matter of twenty-odd pounds I believe. Well if you want to pay it, come to my place of business. l don't conduct my affairs in the teeth of inclement weather
l cant pay you
lm not surprised
Not unless you give me more time
Did l ask you for more time to lend you the money?
Then why should you ask me for more time to pay it back?
Cant take me wife to a debtors prison!
Then leave her behind. Why should she go to a debtors prison anyway? She didnt borrow the twenty pounds, you did. What does your wife got to do with it? For that matter, what have l got to do with it? Good afternoon
But Mr. Scrooge, its Christmas!
Christmas has even less to do with it my dear sir than your wife has or l have. You still owe me twenty pounds and you are not in the position to repay if it was in the middle of a heat wave on August bank holiday. Good afternoon
