Weekend Writing Prompt — Paperwork

“Did you complete all of the requisite paperwork?” the bank’s loan officer, Michelle, asked Larry.

“Yes, but why do you require all of that crap?” Larry asked, feinting naivety.

“You’re a smart guy, Larry,” Michelle said. “You know that extensive documentation is inevitable. Failure to be accurate in your disclosures would be a grave mistake.”

“But it’s such a hassle and so damn time consuming,” Larry said. “Don’t you have researchers on your team who can dig up all of that information? I bet if I were Donald Trump….”

Michelle interrupted him. “You’re on a slippery slope, Larry.”

(Exactly 98 words)

    Lol! Larry’s already at the bottom of the slope. Hope he crawls out of the avalanche of stupidity. 🙂

    A lot of prompts for such a short post. Well done… in spite of that name mentioned.
