can I possible refuse?
Wendy: Haven’t you got anything smaller?
Raymond: All of it.
Wendy: Raymond you only put two pounds a week
on the lotto.
Raymond: I want fifty lucky dips.
Wendy: Fifty pounds is a lot of money.
Raymond: I know how much fifty pounds is.
Wendy: You can’t afford it.
Raymond: It’s my money.
Wendy: Yeah but, you have to buy food, you have
to pay the bills.
Raymond: It’s my money.
Wendy: I know it’s your money Raymond, but have
a think about this for a minute yeah. But what happens if you loose
all of it.
Raymond: What happens if I win ay, yeah. I
would be able to afford proper servants then, not pushy girls like
you telling me what to do all the time.
Wendy: I am not a pushy girl and I’m certainly
not your servant. This is madness.
Raymond: I am not mad. I’m old.
Wendy: I didn’t mean that, look I just mean
that I’ve got a responsibility to make sure that your okay.
Raymond: To tell me what to do you mean.
Wendy: Alright, you obviously know your own
mind, if you think you can afford it.
Raymond: I can afford it.
Wendy: Alright, do what you like but I’m
logging this in the book.
Raymond: Oh yeah.
Wendy: I’m not taking responsibility for how
you waste your money Raymond. Spend it how you like.
