Have a little faith people!

Before everyone jumps down David Dingwall's throat about his expenses, we should give him the benefit of the doubt. There are many reasonable explanations why he would have to expense items like gum, a newspaper, and a bottle of water.

Highly Likely Scenario:

(Setting: David Dingwall on a tour of the Mint's coin making factory in Winnipeg.)

Mint Worker: ...and as you can see this new coin punch...BEEP, BEEP, BEEP. Oh my goodness that alarm means that we are having a serious malfunction with our loonie sorting machine.

David Dingwall: What's the problem?

Mint Worker: Well according to this computer read-out, we have a loose reactor cable on the sorting machine.

David Dingwall: Can you fix it?

Mint Worker: Perhaps, but we would need some type of pliable, yet sticky material that could be used to keep the reactor cable from falling off. I only wish someone out there possessed a magical substance like this.

David Dingwall: Wait a minute, I've got a great idea. I'll be right back.

(five minutes later)

David Dingwall: I have returned, try this.

(Dingwall removes a freshly chewed piece of gum from his mouth and gingerly hands it to the Mint Worker).

Mint Worker: Wow! That adhesive substance you removed from your mouth appears to be working. You're a genius! I guess that's why you get paid the big bucks Mr. Dingwall.

David Dingwall: Don't thank me Mint Worker, thank my gum!
