Solve what. Sometimes I think..
Sid: I’ve been up all night with the ledger.
What did you say?
Sid: I apologies. I know you didn’t hire me as a
safe-cracker, but I had to get some facts. I’ve been through your books.
you mean to say..?
Sid: Seven and a half cents was added to the cost six months ago.
- I can put you in jail.
- That’s what I can do.
- Put you in jail.
Sid: No you can’t.
But you can give that rise. If you don’t I’ll go before the Board and tell them
the situation and tell them how many orders have been lost.
Not one dame order.
Sid: Read your mail. There’s a dozen cancellations. Mabel’s tried all day to tell you about Mark and Klein. And if this operation folds up I fold with it. And I don’t want to, so do me a favour.
Sit down and talk to me.
Hasler sits down.
