I Had to Do Some Traveling

I suppose that no one should be too surprised about Jim and how he is living now. He worked for his father for decades, but he was always wild. He has gone through three wives in the past eleven years. None of them lasted long enough to get the big prize when he inherited the vast assets of his parents. I found him living with a pair of Latina escorts in Las Vegas. Without prompting he told me how he had met them and offered them a salary. Of course I basically knew that. His father was no fool and did not create a situation where he could blow all of the money too quickly. He wanted to see me to try to convince me to open the tap, which of course I was not about to do. He offered me a very attractive bribe after that. She was Asian, a tiny girl with really large, apparently natural breasts.

Jim probably knew that I was not going to do what he wanted, in fact if he had done his homework he would have realized that I can only do what the will says that I can do. It works like this, there is a principal and that is an enormous sum. It never gets touched. It is invested in the company and all sorts of other things, stocks, bonds, real estate, some commodities too. So it produces income, a lot of it. I can hold some of that back if I think there is a need. The language is strained, but when his father told me what to do he wrote it down much plainer in a secret addendum. It basically says that if I think Jim is going completely off of the rails, then I could cut him off for his own good.
