Standard: A Six Sentence Story


"Well," he asked proudly, "what do you think of it?"

With little more than a glance, she shrugged her shoulders and answered, "It's sub-standard."

"What do you mean, 'sub-standard'? I've never had one complaint before about it being sub-standard!" he said with indignation.

"Then you've associated yourself with people who have very low standards. My standards are extremely high, and this," she said, opening the door to usher him out, "is not up to mine."




Linking up with Ivy at Uncharted for Six Sentence Stories with the prompt "standard."

  6. Most definitely I'm wanting to know what dissatisfied her, and if her standards were indeed standard or unrealistically high.
