Last week I found out that the boss at work hides pennies in various places to see if employees clean obscure nooks and crannies. I mentioned this to my wife because it seemed so ridiculous, but completely like something he would do.
A couple days later, my wife mentioned that there was a reward for each nickel I found when dusting the house. It was a lie, but it worked. I dusted more thoroughly than I ever have before, but found no nickels. I was conned.
I guess next time I’ll have to just say that I dusted to make up for this last time.
