Monsters and Manners

the silence remains

‘I don’t believe you!’ Pete Lovelock, the demon detective growled.

‘But it asked so nicely.  It said “please”.’

‘Let me get this straight.  You rang me, terrified about a monster in your basement and then decide to let it out…because it said please?’

‘What else was I supposed to do?’

‘How about ignore it!’

‘I couldn’t have.  That would have been the height of rudeness.’

‘Look, lady.  It’s a monster.  It can deal with a little bit of impoliteness.  Now it’s out there, on the loose, causing who knows how much trouble.’

‘Well, it’s not my problem now.  It’s yours.’
