Should I Get LPG?

Troy : I spent over $200 on gasoline this month.

Reese : Gosh! That’s too much! Where have you been wandering around?

Troy : Nowhere! Same old schedule travelling from office to home. Maybe an odd trip.

Reese : You gotta find a solution! You’ll be spending all your money on fuel.

Troy : Yeah! I’ve been thinking about it. Maybe I should get a LPG kit installed.

Reese : Yeah! You could... It would save you some money.

Can’t Go on the Trip.

Reese : I just saw the groceries list, Reese. Why’re you buying enough for the entire month?

Peyton : We always do that. Don’t we? It saves us money.

Reese : Yeah, but aren’t we going on a week-long trip this month? All this food is going to be wasted.

Peyton : Well Reese… I hate to break it to you dear.

Reese : Break what? What’s going on?

Peyton : We can’t go on the trip. I just got a mailer from the holiday planners. They’ve raised their prices and we can’t afford it anymore.

Reese : What? No way! This is crazy. It was $1,500 just last week!

Peyton : Well, now it’s $1,800. Let’s wait till next month.

Let’s Start a Carpool!

Peyton : Hey, Troy! How are you doing?

Troy : Good. You tell me?

Peyton : Well buddy... we live in the neighborhood, and our offices are right nearby, so I was thinking of something...

Troy : Yeah? Tell me.

Peyton : You know about the gas prices. They’re going up all the time. I think we should start a carpool. Sometimes we take my car, and sometimes yours.

Troy : Hey! That’s a great idea! And it’s environment friendly too. Let’s start from tomorrow.

Peyton : Fantastic!

Need A Better Job.

Troy : I think I’m going to get a new job.

Bruce : Why? What’s wrong with this job?

Troy : I love this job. Being an artist is my calling, but I can’t afford it anymore because it’s not paying my bills.

Bruce : Oh! I am sorry to hear that buddy, but I know what you mean. What are you planning to do?

Troy : I am a trained plumber. Going to take that up again. It pays better.

Bruce : Good luck pal.
