Problem at the Bank

“How soon do you start your big vacation?”

“Huh, oh, couple of days.”

“Wish I had good news for you, but I don’t. We had to release that employee of yours, Alonzo.”

“Release him? Why? I thought he–”

“Not enough evidence. And now we’ve hit a stone wall. In the week since your bank reported the big embezzlement, we’ve interviewed every one of your employees–and come up empty.”


“And this is a small town. It’d be hard to hide that kind of cash.”

“Uh huh.”

“So, did you say you and your wife were going to South America?”
