I'm thinking of hocking a few things.
You've used the pawnshop down the street before, right?
Nolan:Yeah, a few years ago when I lost my job.
I needed a short-term loan to tide me over until I could find a new one.
Jamaica:Is the place legit?
Nolan:It seemed to be. I have no complaints.
Jamaica:That's good. How would I go about pawning something?
Nolan:It's pretty simple.
You bring the pawnbroker something that's worth money to use as collateral and then you get a loan for a fraction of its value.
Then, you have 90 days to repay the loan, plus interest and fees.
Jamaica:How do I redeem my item?
Nolan:You just show them your pawn ticket.
Jamaica:That sounds pretty simple.
What if I can't repay the money by the deadline?
Nolan:Then you forfeit your item.
The pawnshop tries to sell it to recoup the money they lent you.
Jamaica:Okay, I'm going to do it.
I'm going to pawn my collection.
Nolan:Your collection of what?
Jamaica:Action figures. I have the entire collection of ESL Podcast action figures.
There's Jeff, Lucy, Warren, Jessica, Adriano, Pao, LeeAnn, Alison . . .
Nolan:I said something worth money, remember?
