As a child, my dad gave me some money to go pay the electric bill. Instead, I used the money to buy a raffle ticket for a new truck.
I went home and told my dad what I had done, and he beat the crap out of me.
But the next day when we woke up, my dad opened the door, and there in front of our house was a brand new truck.
We all cried, but especially me, because the truck was from the electric company.
They were there to shut off our power.
My dad beat the crap out of me again.
