father and son
By Baker Street
There was a small credit card business out on the main road. It was a father and son establishment. The father had an office on the top floor and he was the general manager. The son worked at the front of the shop at the counter. He was the clerk and cashier. They would loan money through their customers’ credit card accounts, on which they received handsome returns.
The father, who was the manager, sat in office all day and ran the business, keeping an eye on all the enterprises’ affairs and controlling the clients’ accounts. He would lend money out to people, and when the due date came they had to pay him back what they owed him. He was a hard man, and he had ways to assure that his clients would always repay their debts.
The son worked at the counter and helped whichever clients came in and needed help with their payments and accounts. He basically just did the filing and administration. As clerk he was in charge of keeping recorded updates of clients accounts. The old accounts were more or less settled, and new ones were currently running. It's a tough job getting the accounts to balance at the end of the day.
It was a profitable business, and the partnership was a long and happy one.
