Daily Post: Comedy of Errors


Daily Prompt: Murphy’s Law says, “Anything that can go wrong will go wrong.” Write about a time everything did — fiction encouraged here, too!

So I was on my way to buy a Ferrari and the strangest thing happened. It was a beautiful Saturday morning. I visited my local banker, informed him I wanted to buy a car and he was kind enough to provide me with the $539, 039.34 I needed to purchase the car. After much research, I decided the Lambo was just a bit too flashy, so I would go with the more subdued Ferrari. While I was walking to the dealership I noticed a few men standing on the corner drinking from brown paper bags. I said “good morning” and kept walking. For some reason, they followed me, stole my bag full of money and ran away. So, needless to say the police were unable to find these men and the bank was not about to loan me any more money.

That’s the reason I drive a rusted out baby blue station wagon. The bank still wants their money back of course. They were nice enough to amortize the loan over 72 months at 5% interest. So,  my monthly loan payment on this clunker is $8,680.56. I guess you can say something went wrong that Saturday morning.
