Rose ‘I mortgaged my house.. Now what we can do is go to a far off county and take a small apartment and have road side business’
Moses ‘Doesn’t it suck. Life is only become a credit card. If I don’t swipe it, I wont have credit history. If I swipe it, I will spend money and soon screw myself towards debt trap.
Rose ‘Who is debt free. But I heard in Gulf Countries, no one keeps debt.’
Moses ‘Absolutely great. But then plastic card is a big business’
Rose ‘A person earns 50000 and has 10 cards of 20000 limit. 200000. Big bucks.’
Moses ‘Limit is not that much’
Rose suddenly see’s a card below her table
Moses ‘Wow.. can we swipe it’
Rose ‘Let us try for this coffee bill’
It gets swiped successfully.
Moses and Rose are happy..
Moses keeps card in her secret hide out in his upper pocket of his shirt.. He suddenly feels shock waves’
Rose ‘What happened?’
Moses ‘This card seems to be possessed. He throws it’
Rose ‘Oh let us escape..’
Soon the card is sticking to Rose’s buttock and she is running ..
Moses ‘Hey what the heck.. it is stuck behind you’
Rose ‘I am stupid.. I got lured and now the card is stuck to me’
Moses ‘Mortgage it..’
Rose see’s a cobbler
Rose ‘Please remove the card from my back’
Moses and Rose get relieved..
Cobbler smiles gleefully
He goes to Mcdonald and swipes the card
He has full lunch.. Happy he is .. He keeps the card in his pant pocket..
A big shock wave…
His pockets torn.. He throws the card.. but it sticks to his head’
Cobbler shrieks ‘This card sits on my head. I was so relaxed till I didn’t use a card’
Even till date if some one visits the dark tunnel in Central Park.. You will the cobbler with a card on his head’
James completely reads this spoofy news.. dated 1999
He just reads another news item ‘Cobbler found dead under mysterious circumstances. Rose and Moses too had heart attack’
James shivers.. He pens ‘PLASTIC CARD HORROR’
