I am not a man often given to short stories. They have to be particularly good to work in my opinion. It is hard to tell a good tale in such few pages, and only really do ‘tales of the unexpected’ come out right. I have to admit to having downloaded this on my kindle when I discovered it for free, but the (lack of) price was not the only reason.

Awful. Very, very, very short story thankfully.
