10. Buying Someone’s Silence
Mistakes, namely cheating, can become very expensive. Usually, the cost comes with some amount of forgiveness and regained trust. However, for Uncle Joe, the price he’s going to have to pay for this mistake with not only money but his sports car as well. Uncle Joe messaged a mysterious lover that he finally has the house to himself for three weeks so they can come over. The downside is that he sent the message to the wrong person.
Instead of trying to lie his way out of things, he honestly asks their family member what price they want for their silence: $ 500 and his Porsche. Not a bad request, and there’s no guarantee that they’ll even stay quiet either when Aunt Sara gets back. Uncle Joe tries to make a joke about them being related since he would have asked for the Porsche too, but they’re obviously not amused by any of this.
