Observations: Local authorities ever so efficient

Via the intercom a municipal official introduces himself: “Goodmorning, my name is X. I am the inspector of the municipal tax-office. May I ask, do you have a dog?”

“No, we don’t have a dog.” After a moment of silence he replies: “Thank you for your co-operation. Goodbye.”

Could inspection really be that simple? I suppose it can.

Somewhere else in the building a dog starts barking ferociously.
