Okay - well done on the credentials!!! I haven't seen Purdy speak up so the Queen's Assistant and the Cabin Mate will have equal power. ((In true pirate fashion, I will let you two settle any squirmishes that may arise over that decision. Though, I de reserve the right to make you both sit in opposing corners.) ;)

Reports suggest the plank was stolen in the night and placed under Cabin Mate Jase007's bunk. After a fitfull night's sleep, Jase woke up to discover that the booze supply had been raided again and his pants were gone.

Well, the pants aren't so much "gone" as just stored for the duration of the voyage. Frocks are the required attire for cabin mates so Jase won't be needing his pants for awhile. Besides, they were in desperate need of cleaning.

Has anyone seen the Queen's Assistant?? She has this habit of disappearing about the time there's a task for her... Very suspicious...

I though I smelled something strange from the kitchen, but turns out someone put Jase's pants in the oven again.

That would be James and Mikey - the Laundry Lads.

Im Sorry l was actually doing some work!!! In my case for the QA job l have to say lm really good at cracking the whip and giving orders so those cabin mates would not be slacking off the job!! Plus lm not a hardened alcohol thief (unlike some JASE.........) and would only drink when the Pirate King & Queen have a drink in their hands;)

Do they not realize that you are the Queen's Assistant?? How dare they make you do actual work! Send them over here - we'll make them walk the plank! (Thankfully, it's still under Jase's mattress.)

In all fairness, you both have presented excellent credentials. (Skillful whip-cracking takes years of practice, as does good bar service, so the decks are square there.) So, in order to avoid a mutiny before we even set sail, I propose the following:

Purdy has charge on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
Jase has charge on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
Tway has charge on Sundays, if she behaves the rest of the week.
James and Mikey get to practice safe laundry techniques until they get it right or Jase runs out of pants.

Bribes will continue to be accepted. (Pirate's Code: Article 6; paragraph 3.6, line 17.)

(Ah, come one, someone offer a bribe... What type of pirate doesn't use bribery?)

OH YEAH - its Friday therefore l am incharge and typical not a cabin mate to be found - off drinking and pillaging in the local villages and hosteries no doubt!! Well l will be waiting for them when they walk up that gang plank with the cat o nine tales and whilst swigging me bottle of rum and arguing with the parrot!! POLLY where are you, you beakie bird..........

Accepted! You have just earned Tuesdays too. That's what happens when the cabin mates wander off in a drunken fog to pillage. See you on the veranda shortly. I'll bring crackers for Polly.
