A to Z: P is for Paying Paul

For A to Z 2015 I will be posting flash fiction, all random, all the crazy musings of a crazy mind. Hope you like them.

P is for Paying Paul

People are still talking about it; that time when John stole from Peter to pay Paul. It was the most scandalous of events. Peter had just taken out his life savings, life savings I tell you, in order to build that building to house those orphans. And what did John do? He took it. All of it. Three days later Paul was building that same building, next town over. And do you know who lives there now? Orphans. Orphans. And you’d think Peter would be furious about it, wouldn’t you? But he isn’t. He actually works at that house now. He actually looks happy about it. Have you ever heard of such a thing?

The moral: It doesn’t matter who gets credit for the work as long as it gets done.
