Drabble: Truth in Advertising – by Maxine Kollar

by specklit

Juan Hoo – A Tax Man opened his office at the edge of town.

He was far from home but he heard folks round here were ripe for the picking.

Arlis never procrastinated. As soon as all his W-2 came in he was at the office.

He asked Juan a few questions about his IRA while Juan just sat there sharpening his claws.

“I’m sorry, I’m no good at that stuff.”

“Then why open a tax office!”

Tax office..no, no. it should read ‘One Who Attacks Man’

“Gotta check the universal translator,” he mumbles, picking Arlis out of his teeth.

Author’s Note: Sometimes the truth just gets lost in translantion.
