At The Pawn Shop

How could you do such a terrible thing? You just pawned your deceased father’s ring. Think about that ring’s sentimental value. To get cash, could there have been other things to do? That guy is a shyster with his business dealings and such. I’ll bet the amount you got was not much. I kept telling you to stay out of that casino. However, with your money, you continued to go. Who pays for all that ritzy ambience and décor that you see? The casinos get it from losers like you and me. It is only normal that gamblers should lose their money. If there’s a big win, it’s considered an abnormality. Whatever you get each month you don’t save. I’ll bet your old man is turning over in his grave. With this money, go to the pawn shop today. I want you to get that ring back right away.
