Leacock lends a dollar to his friend Todd. Ironically, the money lent to Todd, and that which would cause such heartache for Leacock, could not have been given on any better occasion. Todd is given the dollar to pay his taxi fare while embarking on a journey to Bermuda, a favourite holiday destination. Thus it is obviously a moment of pleasure for the borrower Todd whereas a painful beginning for the lender Leacock. Leacock, in the hope of realizing the debt from his dear friend makes a mention of it whenever he has conversations with Todd. Finally, he gives up the hope of getting it repaid realising that it is futile to try and get back the dollar.“
