After ignoring the situation for many years, Tuboflard, the Chief Medical Officer at the Shalampax Medical Clinic, has finally used her regulatory powers to order Rottentomato, owner of Shalampax’s Most Expensive Restaurant, to either eliminate all vermin from his premises and keep them vermin-free or shut his restaurant down.
That will teach Rottentomato to refuse Tuboflard’s request for a volume discount at the restaurant.
Tuboflard gave Rottentomato six weeks to comply, but Rottentomato did not wait that long. He took immediate action to satisfy the requirements of the injunction. That is to say, he rid his restaurant of vermin, rather than elect the shut-it-down option that Tuboflard generously included in her decree.
