“What what the hell do you want from me”; John screamed at his crying wife! No matter how much overtime he worked there was never enough money to cover the bills.
The only thing he could think of was that maybe it was time to cash in the life insurance.

Scary how that thought comes up during bad times.
How true Charles, look at what happened in the 20’s with people jumping off of buildings all because of money…or lack thereof.
I’d heard about that. Never looked into if it was real or not. Pretty scary.
It actually was real and very sad though I don’t know how many people met this fate.
I want to write one of these. This is very good!
Thank you Carol. You should write one, they are really a lot of fun to write.
haha! funny stuff
Thank you very much.
Dom this is happening alot I think. Great post! Minimum wage is not a living wage.
Sadly I think that it is, probably more than anyone realizes. Thank you my friend.
money money, the root of all evil. At least I hope John didn´t get away with it. They never do in the real life, I want to see a story where they do, And you just gave me an idea
Uh oh! I can’t wait to see what comes out of this. 🙂
Some outlandish thing that´s for sure. I´ve pretty much wrote an overall of what the plot would be. And basically is just a guy that want´s to get the life insurance and as much as he tries to kill his woman in all kind of ways, he keeps on failing and failing, so it´s just one funny disaster after another as to how in the world he can kill her and make it look like an acciden. And from there, more development, much more actually.
I told you guys in the post” thank you” that I do steal your ideas, I´m the literary thief…..
Well it sounds like it will be great, I will keep an eye out for it. Thanks Charly.
