Zuma lad, you know I too have been hitting you upon the noggin with a request to look at "expense reports," have I not? I suppose you need just a little bit of a hint to get you moving in that direction, savvy?
The other evening, if you will, I was at a fine dining establishment having an enjoyable dinner with one of the pirates from another crew that sails in similar waters, but under a different flag, savvy? Two gentlemen came in, sat themselves down and began to enjoy themselves immensely; they were cussing and swearing up such a blue streak that we thought they were Corsairs, savvy? But they were not. Who were they? In a minute, lad.
Now you can imagine my surprise upon seeing these two men together in the same room. Discussing things that if asked each would swear upon a stack of Bibles that they did not even THINK of discussing....things like dealing with the Union, inside information for use in hoodwinking certain union officials, etc. And all the while using language that even made my pirate ears hurt. Now I may be a pirate, but I am a well-spoken one, I am. And a quick word with the proprietor confirmed that these two meet to have dinner on a regular basis.
So, the more alcohol these two consumed, the worse and louder the profanity became (especially when discussing the union associated with the entity that one of the blokes represented) until it got to the point where it was no longer pleasant to be in the vicinity of these two. The proprietor apologized profusely but what could he do? These two are regular patrons. They meet quite often to discuss how one will appear before the public in one manner but differently in private.
Oh, and who were the two? Villabarbosa and the man who is in charge of the light and power. Imagine those two discussing how to bust the union over a good bottle of wine, savvy?
Yes, please take a look at expense reports. There's more shiznit to be heard once this little tidbit reaches the ears of them that read and report, savvy?
And before I forget, the proprietor (bless his heart) will vouch that Captain Jack Sparrow is BY FAR a better tipper than the other two blokes.
