Plain English in the Debt Debate

Gene Callahan and Abba Lerner Insist on Plain English in the Debt Debate:
After blowing the $15 grand at the casino, I swung by Gene’s apartment. The following conversation ensued:

GENE: You did what?!

BOB: Not sure why you’re getting so upset. I haven’t hurt you in any way, shape, or form, unless you adopt some weird definition of “hurt.”

GENE: You just enjoyed a rip-roaring binge at the casino by issuing a claim on my property, without even consulting me.

BOB: What’s your point? I’m not following you here. I had a great time. You don’t like me to have fun?

GENE: Tony and Luigi are coming here right now to take my car!!

BOB: Yep, that will probably suck.

GENE: It’s your fault they’re coming!

BOB: What are you talking about? All I did was sign a piece of paper and take their money. They’re the ones who are going to physically take your car.
