Has Jimmy been coming in lately?
No, I haven't seen him around. Why? Has he been causing any trouble?
Not that I know of. But I need to see him, because my friends and I lent him some money last month.
We haven't heard from him since.
I heard he comes here a lot, so I thought I'd come in and check with you.
Well, that's funny. Some other fellow came in asking for Jimmy just yesterday, a real nervous, pushy type of fellow, saying he needed Jimmy for some study project they were working on.
But I can't quite remember what it was all about. Is this a lot of money we're talking about here?
No, just 60 pounds between the three of us, but still a bit too much to just let go.
He told us he'd got into an accident.
Nothing serious, mind you, but he damaged someone's car and wanted to get some money together to make up for the damage he'd caused.
Hmm, isn't that sort of thing usually,covered by insurance?
And then, if you still wanted to give money as some sort of apology or something, he probably shouldn't have to go around borrowing it from people.
You think Jimmy's just making it all up?
See, I did think it was a bit weird for him to be asking for money for that sort of thing.
And his story was a bit vague to begin with. But I thought maybe he doesn't want his parents to know about what happened.
So he'd rather come to us and keep things quiet.
Anyway, Jimmy is a good guy. So we didn't make a fuss about it.
