“Take It To The Limit”

Mr. Engstrom was a good man. In the spring of 1968, he took a chance and hired a kid off the streets to clean his office on a regular basis. I worked for him until late november of that year. He only asked that I not steal from him, and I asked that he not argue the price of the job. I didn't steal from him, and he always argued the price.
I loved the guy. He was easier to work for than Fishpole John, who I worked for about six months longer than I did for Mr. Engstrom. I used to use the money he paid me to buy newspapers and sell them on the street. He always bought his paper from me.
How good was Mr. Engstrom? I was ten, and he trusted me.
