Flash Fiction #30












The lawyer arrives at the Pearly Gates for judgement, confused.

“I’m not supposed to be here!  I’m only 37.”

St. Peter says, “No, we checked your billed hours, and apparently you’re 104”


….and there will be a $27 charge for photocopies, and an $8 charge for consumed office supplies, and a $100 registration fee for the use of our legal library….

“I had hoped that selling the little house that your mother left us would pretty much pay off our debts.  Will there be anything left when they’re done?  This law firm is sucking the life out of us.”


Go to Rochelle’s Addicted to Purple site and use her Wednesday picture as a prompt to write a complete 100 word story.


Admittedly, it’s not all completely original work, but there was a lot of appreciation the last time I slagged lawyers, so I thought I’d throw in another laugh or two.  We all need a laugh or two where lawyers are involved   😀

    Ah, the terrible burden of being a lawyer, I shall devote the next billable unit to crying.

    There’s an all too familiar ring to this. Or do I mean ‘wring’? Made me grin.

  3. Dear Archon,

    The people we love to hate…until we need legal assistance. I’ll admit it, I laughed.

    I loved at this one as it caught me off guard. Many thanks!


  8. Archon, Funny story. 😀 I happen to have found a good and helpful lawyer, but some are like the one in your story. Unfortunate they give the others a bad name. Happy Holidays to you and your family. 🙂 — Suzanne
