friday fictioneers: moral dilemma

Copyright-Dawn Q. Landau

“I’ve heard of foreclosures, but this is going a bit far, don’t you think?” I asked my banker.

“Well, since your home was ‘under water,’ that is since your home was worth less than you owed, we thought we’d blast it to smithereens and collect on the insurance. That way you get 50 and we get 50…and we all make out handsomely.”

I couldn’t believe my ears. My upstanding mortgage company was going belly up as far as morality was concerned.

The ball was in my court.

What to do?

Play ball? Or go home?

  1. Dear Millie,

    Sounds like a viable plan to me. I used to say that I was going to paint my last house with kerosene and then light a match. My husband thought it a bad idea. You just can’t work with some people.

    Cute story.




    • Thanks, Rochelle. I like your idea. Whimsical with a definite edge. ha, ha. As for working with people I’ve depicted, if I never do I’ll consider myself a very lucky earthling. hugs…


hugs for sharing some brief thoughts...and keeping them positive
