settling a score

I’ve been nagging Todd for about a month to change the burnt-out lightbulb in our garage.

Finally, I decided to clamber onto the roof of Grandpa’s car and do it myself.

But after the job was done, I decided to toy with Todd a little.

After all, if I let him become too cozy with the notion that I’ll take care of his unsavory chores, I might find myself hanging Christmas lights next month.

I found a template for a fake invoice. Then, I entered the information of a make-believe handyman service and printed it up.

I then stuck it in the folder with the rest of the bills.

He’s going to be steamed when he thinks this is what I had to resort to in order to get that lightbulb changed. It’s about a week’s worth of his beer money, after all.

I can’t wait.



  1. Great idea! I would pocket the money and not let him in on the joke. That way you can use it again if necessary.

  2. OMG that is too funny.. Did he see it yet?

  3. He did. I was giving Logan a bath and watched him out of the corner of my eye as he went through the bills.

    “What’s this sh*t?” I heard him say.

    He figured out pretty quick that it was a joke, though. I guess I gave it away when I laughed so hard I had to cross my legs to keep from wetting my pants.
