The light bulb

The happy inhabitants of the distant town of Fondo enjoy the benefits of a system that supplies them with everything they need to live for free. In return, they should only behave well and follow the rules of coexistence.

The ordinance has established the obligation for all citizens who own property to keep the street light on, at night, with the single national bulb that is only distributed by the public office.

Jaime Pérez, an exemplary neighbor who strictly complies with ordinances, has burned out his light bulb and must go to the public office to change the light bulb free of charge, under penalty of a fine, if he does not do so within three days.

Jaime will verify how easy it is to carry out an official procedure in that town, where joy has been decreed by superior order.
