"Why have you come to the conference,"
you ask Mr Simon Hayes.
He answers by saying, "Well… er… I offered him lots of money." He
was shivering with a croaking voice while he was speaking saying
something like, "I offered him plenty of money" "So I…I…I…I…," he
You tell him to stop jibbering and you tell him to spit out what
ever he could.
He tries again saying, "I am here because… because… I offered him
lots of money for the machine. I.. I.. I didn't, er, do anything
wrong. I.. I… just offered him money but still he wouldn't give
me the machine."
You still do not know whether to believe him. For all you know this
could be nonsense but no one would come to the conference for nothing.
