i fully accept that I might be missing something in this

feel free to point out where I go wrong:

— —

I dig your garden

you repair my car

no money changes hands, and equal amount of energy has been traded between us and each is happy with the deal

but

if I dig your garden, for cash, and I define my effort as having a value according to my wishes and wants, then I can value my work at the value of a Ferrari (which I want).

You then tell me to get lost.

I sue you for the value I put on my day’s digging, and the judge also tells me to get lost. (and probably asks if I read the sanity claus in our contract)
