Say it. Go on. You know you want to.
You find one shred of evidence that you paid a DIME to me beyond partial payment for my airfare.
Prove one this one thing, you idiot liar.
We both know you're lying.
You know, Rick.... I chaired a con a few years ago. A literary conference. Our author guest of honor, Charles de Lint, was coming from Canada. Our scholar guest of honor came from Flint, Michigan.
Now... the conference was being held on a college campus, so room & board was covered for that. But we paid upfront -- and I mean WE PAID (and made the reservations) for the plane fare coming and going, BEFORE the con. We made sure they were met on time, and got to the airport on time. I forget what the departure scheduling was, but if we knew that they would not be able to depart the same day as the end of the con, we would also have covered that night in the hotel for them.
And this wasn't a rich organization. But guess what, Mr. Smarty-Pants? That con, the one I chaired, was the first one the organization had held that actually made money. And that's because my committee and I worked hard to make it so. No, I didn't handle every detail myself, but I certainly knew that everything was being covered.
So, trust me.... your protestations do NOT impress or sway me one bit. Peanut.
Stay away from the chimps. You can't reason with them and you'll just end up with monkey shit all over your clothes.
