I knew something was wrong as soon as Jack got back from the convention. I just did not realize why he was acting so nervous. Of course it was the accountants who told about his expense report, which they did not see how anyone could justify it. It was a couple of weeks before he finally told me the story, not thinking that his wife and I would talk about his adventure with a Las Vegas escort agency. Now he was on the job and in the end that seems to be the thing that saved him, he was trying to make the biggest deal of his life and to do it went on the hook for five escorts for five extremely inebriated clients. Apparently he was at least half way in the bag himself and it is likely he would not have done it if he had not been.
This would have been a disaster for him if he had not managed to close all five of these deals. He did not say outright that he blackmailed the other guys, but he sort of intimated that he might have. When your butt is on the line you do stuff that you might not do otherwise and he knew that he was in a tough spot. Of course he wants me to say that none of these escorts laid one finger on him. I am not sure that I am supposed to know this, but at any rate we want the business that he brought home and the expense report is not really that big of a deal when you bring home really big orders. Tomorrow I am going to have a meeting and we are going to start planning on adding an extra shift until we get caught up on things.
