Although the store has been in trouble before, Gary learns that he will truly have to close it if he doesn't get an infusion of cash quickly. Benny knows of an investor: himself, as he just came into a $9,500 inheritance, which with his own $500, is exactly the $10,000 Gary needs. Benny offers this money as a silent partner, of which Gary will split the store profits 50/50 on the upcoming one day sale. One part of this plan does not come to pass, namely the silent part, as Benny can't help but provide first his input, then second his directives, and then third his direct management of everyone including Rhoda and Brenda, who volunteer to take time out of their own jobs to help at the sale, and even Gary. The questions become what those affected by Benny's actions will do, and if their collective relationships can withstand this unexpected fracture. Upon reflection, Gary has a clearer head about Benny's doings. Written by
