Itemised Bill

The situations one comes across in ministry. I went to see X and his wife, who were in distress. X had not been well -- however with his wife he was able to take care of the necessities -- and his son and wife came over every now and then to bring him cheer, and provide him with take-aways. But on this day, his son had sent him an itemised bill: so much for loss of earnings (taking time out for father), so much for petrol / gas, so much for the take-aways, and so on. Not only that, but he added a warning that he was to go to law if he didn't get his money. X’s wife said gently that this seemed "a little doubtful". I said it’s not just a little doubtful!
