"Just because its easy for you doesnt mean it cant be hard on your clients"
-a book

another rule from the 7 habits?

I seem to remember mention of a rule being given without actually being numbered, any ideas?

I don't think it's a rule---it implies clients, and pirates are notorious for leaving nobody happy. You're supposed to at least give lip service to making clients happy.

I admit, that was one direction I hadn't though of taking it

Any bets as to what the second and first most awful things Kaff's ever said to Breya are?

What I want to know is exactly how she could file it that quickly. Does she only remember the two worst things, and this wasn't that bad, or does she keep a "Top Ten Worst Things I've Ever Heard Tagon Say" list in her head, to update on a moment's notice?

Can you hear that? That's the sound of every married and/or seriously involved man on this forum spluttering, laughing to himself nervously, then looking around to see if his wife is watching.

My money (assuming I was to have money) is on the latter possibility.

That's the 3rd worst thing she's heard Tagon say?

Wow, I suppose he really cleans up his act when she's around; it seems like we hear stuff that mercenary out of him on a weekly basis. :twisted:

Not the "third worst" -- the "third most horrible". I think Breya measures "horribleness" in moral/ethical terms, unlike "badness" which can just be ordinary coarseness, obscenity, etc.

And I'm guessing that at least one of the first two was during the recent story, e.g., somewhere around here. Nothing comes to mind for the other -- it could be something else that's happened in the Outjack system, or something from back during the Buuthandi battle or when she was still with the Toughs. I'm pretty sure there's something from back then that's horribler than anything recent, but the recent stuff would be fresher in her mind.

My hunch is that there's one thing from back during their earlier association that so burned itself into her mind that it stands out as the "most horrible" (though I don't know what it would be). Then #2 is recent and #3 is right now.

Wow, I think that makes me about 0 for 3 on predictions. Watch what I say: it's probably wrong.

THE SUN WILL RISE TOMORROW!
