Free Tickets to a Play

Richard Stevens, “Once Over Lightly.” New Man, vol. 8, no. 3, June 1970, p. 6.

A private investigator sent a San Francisco couple two free tickets to a play with a note, saying: “I know you will enjoy this show, a friend…” The couple showed up and sat next to the investigator, without knowing he was their benefactor. At the final curtain, the investigator handed the man a subpoena and said, “It was an awfully nice experience meeting you folks…but I’ve been trying to serve you with this for two months, without luck.”
