Hi everyone! Muffin here😺 with more fun with my human and me! Today we talk about new great idea to start business together. When I talk you will see my words in ( 😺), like that. When my human talk, you see his words in “😀 “, like that. Got it? Okay, we get started now.
(I have great new idea for us, we start new business so we can raise extra money.) “Why do we need extra money?” (For new play structure.) “But you already have a play structure, why do you need another one?” (Come and see. It all shredded, can see wood pieces now, not look nice.) “That’s because you are using it, but it’s not broken and…” (Need new play structure, this one embarrassing.) “Sigh, okay, let’s hear this great business idea.” (That better, we call it M & S Haircutting Service.) “Um, why is your name first?” (It my great idea, so my name first, when you have great idea, your name first.) “I have had lots of ideas.” (True, but none good.) “Also, I’m not very good at cutting hair you know.” (You get better after a while, just need practice, you practice on customers, then you get good.)
“I might also get hit.” (That your problem.) “Thanks” (Welcome! Now, we charge $12 per haircut.) “Um, that’s kind of cheap.” (You also not good, you just say so, can’t charge higher price until you get better.) “That’s a good point, I guess. Now, we are partners in this right? So we split the profits, right?” (Yep, that right, but after expenses, then we split profits.) “Okay, that makes sense. Don’t forget, we have to pay for our equipment.” (Yep, have all marked down here in note pad, stop interrupting.) “Oh, sorry, I’ll stop now.” (About time, now we get somewhere.) “Someone certainly needs to.” (You interrupting again.) “Oops, sorry.”
(Okay, so $1 per haircut for paying haircut equipment.) “Only until we get it paid.” (The way you drop things all the time, we probably need new haircut equipment by then, so have to start over.) “Sigh, thanks for that.” (Welcome! Now, next we pay employees $2 per haircut.) “What employees? I thought we were partners?” (Yep, we partners, but I also accountant, so that make me employee.) “Well, then I would be an employee too.” (No, your part just your part as partner, my part as partner is coming up with great idea.) “That figures.” (Thank you! $2 go for new uniforms.)
“Why can’t we just dress normally?” (You want to scare customers? Now, $1 for customer treats.) “What’s this customer treats?” (We want people to come back, you not give good haircut, so we give nice treats to bring them back.) “Might work. Um, we’re down to just $6 now, so we split that and…” (Not so fast, not finished yet. Don’t forget pension fund, another $2.) “That leaves us with $4, so we, wait a minute, what’s this pension fund idea?” (Have to think of future, stop interrupting so much.) “Okay, so we split that and each get $2.” (You go too fast, not finished yet. Now, $1 for employee treats.) “I won’t even try to argue that one, now we’re down to $3, so that leaves us…” (Wait, not finished.) “What’s next, miscellaneous items?”
(What that mean?) “That’s for things we haven’t thought about yet.” (Oh, I like that one, $2 for that one.) “Um, we now have only $1 left to split.” (Okay, we split 50/50, that gives us 50 cents each.) “You forgot insurance.” (Why we need that?) “For all the people who are going to sue us for bad haircuts.” (What that mean?) “It means people will take us to court and take everything we own, including your play structure, because of the bad haircuts.”
Muffin sits looking at me and blinking. Then she looks at her notebook. Shred, shred, rip, rip, tear, tear, crumple, crumple, toss! (Why you come up with bad idea?) “I came up with a bad idea?” (Glad you agree.) Wait a minute, I didn’t…forget it, I’ll never win that one. But I did have one good idea.” (What that?) “When I brought you home from the cat shelter.” She looks at me, eyes blinking. (😻😻😻😽😽💖💖💝💝💗💗, I have bestest human I could want. Okay, mushy part over, let’s shop for new play structure!) “Okay, computer time then!” (YAY!!!😸)
That end, have nice day everyone and God bless!
Muffin and Steve.
