“Ok, Mayor, welcome to your town! There’s a lot of work to get done around here, so let’s get started!

Where are you going? Oh, you’re fishing. I get it. That’s fine! We can talk about the town’s budget while you fish. No problem with that. Now, our yearly expenditures are — wait, where are you going now?

Oh, you’re selling that fish you just got! Great! We could definitely use more bells. I’ll just add that to the…

Oh. That money’s gone, I guess. Tom Nook took it from us. Again. That raccoon will be the end of this town yet.

All right, Mayor, we’ll come up with another plan, I’m sure. If you’ll just sit down at this desk here, and sign some of these forms, we’ll be on our way in no time!

You’re going back outside. You’re not sitting at the desk.

.. And now you’re randomly shaking trees. Look, Mayor, I don’t think this is the best way to run this town. I’ve been going over some of the books, and I think what’s needed here is some good old-fashioned leadership, real Mayor Daley type stuff. Shaking trees, if I may say so, just doesn’t seem like the way to do that.

Wait, you just shook that tree and money fell out. And is that furniture? Why are there actual goods falling out of our trees?

And you’re selling them again. And giving the money to Tom Nook.

Look, Mayor, I don’t think this is working out. Now you have a shovel, and you’re — oh — you’re digging up some kind of pitfall seed. I really don’t see what this has to do with fiscal responsibili — oh, I see. You reburied the seed and caught a villager in the pitfall. Very funny.

Look, Mayor, maybe I’ll just do this paperwork myself. Yes, I’ll do it. You just keep doing what you’re doing, which currently is apparently trying to plant a bag of money in the ground. Who knows?

Right, I’ll just take care of it. You have a fun time over on that island. What are you doing over there again? Oh yes, catching beetles. Perfect plan, Mayor. SIGH.”
