While watching one of the many daytime soaps on t.v., when suddenly the door bell chimes. Julia lying flat out on the couch mumbles to herself that she'd just got comfortable and now has to rise to answer the front door. Standing in the doorway is her husband's manager Gerry who says, Thought i'd drop by as i was in the neighbourhood to let you know Garry has extra deliveries to make tonight and won't be home until much, much later.
Keen to keep her husband's manager happy and at the same time score some extra brownie points with Garry, Julia invites Gerry in for a cup of coffee. Once inside Gerry asks, How about we race upstairs for a quickie, Julia quickly refuses.
Come on Gerry replies, I'll show you a bonza time and even pay you $2,000 for your trouble so now what do ya say?.
Struggling to make ends meet because of the ever mounting debts, Julia reluctantly agrees and they both trot on upstairs to the master bedroom. Half an hour goes by with the deed done Gerry hands over the $2,000 as promised and leaves with a big fat arrogant smirk on his fat ugly face. Meanwhile Julia stashes the $2,000 in her red leather handbag for safe keeping.
Around midnight Garry arrives home, parks his delivery van in the two car garage and is greeted at the back door by Julia.
Had any visitors today?, Garry asks.
Yep, your manager Gerry dropped by to let me know you'd be working late tonight with extra deliveries, replies Julia.
Oh! good says Garry, did Gerry drop off my pay packet as well it should come to a total of $2,000 on the nose?. Furious and guilty Julia removes the pay packet containing the $2,000 from her red leather handbag, hands it over to Garry without further discussion.
