Never Trust a Used Car Salesman
Joe now worked in a giant mailbox that was the mailroom. The last thing he had to do for the day was put fliers in each box.

“Ya know, I used to be a used car salesman…”

She didn’t care enough to respond and continued to highlight addresses on her list.

“Yeah, but I wasn’t good at lying. I never made any money.”

When he finished, he clocked out and went out into the cold. His engine wouldn’t start no matter how hard he tried. He knew he shouldn’t have trusted that used salesman but he was so convincing. (99 words)
