And like a poor trusting fool i believed him. The other Man did Call however and hastily looked Over my slip. Asked a few meaningless questions and abruptly changed i mind. You see. I really was not old enough to receive the magazines or so he said. Upon issuing this statement he proceeded to non Hal Antov walk out and when i asked for my Money Back he told me that the first Salesman would bring it to Date i have not seen this Young Man again and he is Money to the Good.
