The Cost of an Ottoman

Me: Chan, stop tipping back on the ottoman. If you break one of the legs off you'll have to pay for it. We'll have to get a new one and it'll be about $200.
Chan: But I only have $18.
Me: Right. So you'll be giving me money for a long time to finish paying for the new ottoman.
Chan: How much was it again?
Me: $200
Chan: So, that's $20?
Me: No, $200.
Chan: So, that's $102?
Me: No, Chan, $200.
Chan: So what is that? 20 pennies?
Me: No, Chan, TWO HUNDRED DOLLARS.
Chan: Well I don't even know what that looks like. (stops tipping the ottoman)
