Years and Years ago; another dad story. My dad was at a company dinner, food and liquor, cigars also, in the 70’s, the cheque came and the president of the company told my dad to “pay for it,” about $4000. He said he was sweating, trying mentally to figure it out. Then someone said, “no” someone else was to pay, problem over, the next day he applied for an AMEX card.
