Getting His Money’s Worth

money nexture

In 1930, a man from Boston wrote the following amusing letter to The Christian Science Monitor, a weekly periodical:

Dear Sir,

When I subscribed a year ago you stated that if I was not satisfied at the end of the year I could have my money back. Well, I would like to have it back.

On second thought, to save you trouble, please apply it to my next year’s subscription.

What a cunning man! The subscription’s fine print would most likely not allow this, but I can’t fault him for trying.
