Elmer and his cohorts thought it easy to secure a loan. All they had to do was hand over the title to their trikes. They pocketed the cash and peddled off into the sunset under the assumption that they’d pay off their loan at the end of the month – once their paycheck came in. Working for the city sanitation department had its advantages but a monthly paycheck, instead of a bi-weekly one, certainly wasn’t one of them.
The weeks passed quickly and before they knew it, payday had arrived! But unbeknownst to Elmer, his pay had been reduced. Apparently the sanitation commissioner didn’t find Elmer’s attempts to scavenge refuse from sealed trash cans an asset. Elmer was paid to deliver trash to the dump, why should the commissioner care about its origins – trash was trash!
Forlorned, Elmer peddled to the title pawn company where he was directed to petition the Title Pawn Boss. That’s when Elmer knew he was in trouble.
