“Oh hey, partner!” Valerie said to Camilla. “I’ve got your money right here.”

“I was, uh, trying to save time,” Valerie replied.
“No, you’re stealing,” I said. “Camilla and Zoe both agreed to work for you. Camilla did half the yards, and Zoe did the other half. You were going to ‘split the money’ with both of them… without doing any work yourself.”
“I am insulted,” Valerie said. “I worked hard.”
“Really?” Camilla said. “Because you don’t look sweaty.”
