All in the Family, by Ann-Louise Truschel

“Our fee is $100,000, Mr. Miller.”

“I’ll pay it.”

“And how will you pay it, Mr. Miller?”

“My wife’s $500,000 double indemnity policy pays $1,000,000 in case of accidental death.”

“But that money becomes available only after we ‘remove’ your wife. We expect payment up front. Otherwise there’s a 15% premium, which must be paid before we take the job.”

“That’s $15,000! I’ll try to get it,” and he walks away.

“Do you think he’ll be back?”

“No matter.”

“Why not???”

“His wife has a double indemnity policy on him, and she’s willing to pay the full $100,000 up front.”
