“This is a serious accusation, and I’ll need the details.”

“Yes, the details. How is he cheating?”

“He’s cheating very well. The bonefish he’s catching aren’t as long as he’s claiming.”

“How long are the one’s he’s claiming?”

“Substantially longer than the ones he’s catching.”

“But you’ve been witnessing the measurements, as required, so how are the fish he’s catching different from the ones he’s claiming?”

“Because he’s very fast.”

“He’s very fast at what?”

“So he’s measuring, and claiming, and cheating without your witnessing?”

“That’s right, without my witnessing.”
