Me: Blah blah blah and I even found and tossed some old payslips.
Fraser: I keep all of mine at work. Ha! You can’t get to them.
Me: But … why?
Fraser: Because, if you throw them out, how can you calculate EXACTLY HOW MUCH MONEY YOU HAVE EVER EARNED IN YOUR WHOLE LIFE?
The doubly scary thing? He thinks I wish I’d thought of it first.
