With Lum and Abner spending so much time working at the hotel, grandpap had been keeping the store. Today the gents settle up on what to pay grandpap for his services. Will Lum be forced to pay the salary he agreed on, or will grandpap settle for less?>
Grandpap is stubborn enough to stick up for the deal that was made to him. Lum is looking at sharing half the profits, but Abner tries to hold him to expenses, damages, and repairs that happened under grandpap’s watch.
Will grandpap agree to the reduxed wage? Grandpap can play that game too, and has his own list of contributions he has made out of his own pocket that Lum owes him for. The new balance puts it right back up and more when the old guy includes his legal fees he anticipates when he sues for his salary.
Note: Chet Lauck has trouble keeping a straight face during grqandpap’s reading of his expenses.
