Back in the 80s there was this John Cusack movie whose name I have long forgotten. It was kinda wierd. But, it had one of those classic lines that you would find yourself repeating, particularly around kids who’d seen the movie. John Cusack played a teenage boy in a strange family. The paper boy always came around ready to collect his $2. The parents were never around to pay up and Cusack wasn’t about to shell out cash to the paper boy. The paper boy, however, was tenacious, and is seen throughout the movie, calling, “I want my $2!” He even chases Cusack up a snowy mountainside to reclaim his due.
I felt a little like that paper boy last night when I came home from grocery shopping to find that I had been double charged for an item. The amount? You guessed it. Two dollars!
I want my two dollars! And I’m gonna get it tomorrow when I drive by that store on my morning out.
