A Matter of PaymentApril 9, 2009
Keggs (butler/tour guide of Totley castle): Admission is one shilling.
Gracie: Well, we usually get more than that, but give us our shillings and we’ll go in.
Keggs: But I don’t pay the people madame, the people pay me.
Gracie: Oh, well then give me my money back.
Keggs: But you didn’t give me any money!
Gracie: That’s not my fault!
George: Here’s your money mister.
Keggs: Thank you! [George enters the castle]
Gracie: How much did he give you?
Keggs: Two shillings.
Gracie: And how much is the admission?
Keggs: One shilling.
Gracie: Oh. Well, give me my change!
Keggs: Oh, I beg your pardon madame. I was a little confused for the moment.
