Don't Look a Gift Horse in the Mouth...

I took a royal flogging on this one. The bench was supposed to be free if I stored another one for the Shyster at N.O. Antiques and it was a total setup because once they got to my house I decided I wanted to keep both since they looked so good. I have no recollection of the negotiations due to the severe beating I took but when I came to, it turned out that the Shyster now owns that Oak Hall Bench with the Beveled Mirrors, and I owe $100 to the guy I was selling it for. Unbelievable.

ALWAYS look a Gift Bench in the mouth!

Come to think of it, I think everyone made out in this deal... but I won't let on so the Shyster can relish his little victory until I get him back next week.
