TLT: Standing in Line

Photo Prompt: Mike Wilson

He’d been standing in line, waiting his turn, for far longer than he cared to remember. The sign continued to blink idly in the distance; the column shuffled slowly forwards. Bureaucracy, it seemed, wasn’t just a problem in the land of the living.

This post is for Sonya’s Three Line Tales challenge.

  1. It’s probably worse in the afterlife. Just think of how long they’ve had to think up exciting new forms to fill in 🙂

  2. Ha! Cracking last line there Louise. Ever seen the old film A Matter of Life and Death? There’s a whole lot of heavenly bureaucracy in that too. Great three lines 🙂

    • Thanks, Lynn. I’m glad you liked it. I don’t think I have seen that film – I’ll have to check it out. 🙂

      • It’s old, a little hammy, but still a great story. Though you’ll be lucky to catch it these days. A great read Louise 🙂
