This month’s prompt from Bruce Gargoyle’s Fiction in 50 challenge is… Sincerely Yours.  Amazingly, I wrote it in 51 words, which didn’t take a lot of editing!

In response to your request for a refund for faulty goods, the answer is no.

The 5-pt text at the end of your guarantee tells you that. Do you seriously think anything that cheap would last as long as a year?

Got you, sucker!

Have a nice day.

Sincerely Yours….


Next month… A kernel of truth (sounds like we could go Nutting again)

    I’m pretty sure I’ve seen that 5-pt type.

      It’s all too common, these days.

    Do you know, this just reminded me that I haven’t received a reply to the second of my “Where is the book that I ordered?” emails that I sent recently to an online distributor who will remain nameless. Looks like I’ll have to send a third email, and this time I will be using some strong language (such as “if it isn’t too much trouble” and “please could you attend to this matter when you have time”).

    Thanks for joining in again!
