The lady of the house is irritated. Her mid-morning routine is interrupted by an unscheduled plumbing service.
The set up is not uncommon, and neither are the characters. But as the story continues, their behaviour becomes increasingly erratic.
The plumber pockets a diamond ring on the vanity table, under her nose, and she feigns blindness in self-defence.
They’re both gripped by fear again when another unannounced visitor drops in.
The stolen diamond ring might go unnoticed by its owner, but there’s nothing uncommon about these thieves.
