Reconnecting in the store business, the gents find themselves in a role reversal. Abner is president, and sole owner after their arrangement in splitting ways over the movie theater. Lum finds himself as the employee, and delivery boy for Abner. He describes to grandpap, his humiliation in dealing with customers, and delivery mistakes.
Is it too late to go pick avocados as a migrant worker in California? Abner enters to throw his weight around, and give orders to Lum. Abner puts on a good show at being bossy, but he shares with grandpap it’s just to teach Lum a lesson. Grandpap is concerned that Abner may push it too far in his fun.
Abner’s real plan is to increase Lum’s meager wage, but he doesn’t want Lum to jump back into his old role in the store before he’s had to suffer first. Is Abner over promising his goods to the customers on the party line? The line between the job titles soon gets shaky, and is sure to revert back.
