Yes, it is possible to turn out sloppy on certain occasions!
You know those office parties in evening when all the top brass is looking around and critically scrutinizing one and all.
Lay it down to the two horse town I am in; there is actually a true story where one guy relaxing after a round at Golf just tossed it in air referring to a sensitive business development from which it was just not possible to emerge without taking a bullet 'that guy, oh well... I am bit skeptical that he is capable of delivering but we will still do our bit as best as we can under given circumstances".
The King's provocateur did his bit too and the commenting guy was asked to put in his paper with 'we believe that you have lost confidence in our ability to steer this vertical and business. it is better we part ways, here is your pink slip'.
Really crazy stuff happens in small towns.
