In today's strip, Mrs Walsh all but tells Elly that she doesn't actually have the money to pay her. Since Elly hasn't got a head for business, she can't figure that out.

(Strip Number 4330, Original Publication Date, 11 May 1983)

Panel 1: Now that Elly has made her stupid ultimatum, Mrs Walsh stammers out a baffled "PAID?? But, Elly, I....."

Panel 2: Before she can tell her that she can barely keep the paper afloat as it is, Elly tells her that she just needs to be paid for her gas and baby-sitting. Since covering the expenses of a volunteer really isn't Mrs Walsh's problem, she mutters "Sorry."

Panel 3: Clueless Elly reminds us that she doesn't actually know when to quit when she tells Mrs Walsh that she's been going a good job so her work must be worth something.

Panel 4: Mrs Walsh's comment about how valuable her gratitude is confuses and depresses Elly.

Summary: The Lynnsight will probably about other people who tried to keep Lynn from grabbing her chips by making 'excuses' like this. This is because Miss Punctuality can't get it through her thick skull that people are forced to delay paying her because of things that they cannot control.
