Sam: Hi. Is this the pump rebuild shop?
Repairman: It is. Are you from the ship that pulled in today?
Sam: I'm the owner. Are you the only one here?

Sam: I hear you didn't get paid for the last pumps you rebuilt.
Repairman: Yeah. It turns out not paying people for the work they do is an effective way to get your costs down.
