Manon pointed out this fellow with a smart hat and a sign advertising arguments. I had to take photos. But there was no way I was going to buy an argument. I get way more arguing than I need just paying for internet service, never mind what comes with my job.
"How much for an argument?" I asked.
"A dollar for five minutes..." he said.
"That's awfully high," I said.
He pointed out several reasons why it wasn't so high including that he gave high quality arguments and the price was lower than he made TAing.
"I just got a free argument from you," I said and snapped another shot.
"Think of it as a sample," he replied.
I asked, "What qualifies you to sell arguments."
"Seven years of studying philosophy," he replied.
I gave the poor bugger a toonie and wished him good luck.
