Cajun Miss understanding
A couple of Louisiana lads have language difficulties

Two Cajun boys called Pierre and Boudreaux found themselves out of a job when the underwear factory in Port Barre shut down. So their boss said they should go to the Louisiana State Unemployment Office (LSU) to get some money from the State while they were looking for work So Pierre and Boudreaux went to the LSU office.

Boudreaux was interviewed first.
"What was your former occupation?" asked the Unemployment lady.
"Me, I was a crotch stitcher. I specialised in ladies underpants," Boudreaux replied proudly.
The lady looked it up in her big book and said, "OK, you're eligible for $50 a week."
"You mean I don't gotta do nothin' and I kin get $50 a week. Man, dats betta den crawfishin'!" Boudreaux exclaimed.
The lady ignored him and asked Pierre the same question.
Pierre looked her straight in the eye and said, "I was one a dem diesel fitters."
She looked it up in her big book again and said: "OK then, you're eligible for $200 a week in unemployment benefits."

"Wait a minute!" Boudreaux shouted. "Mais, how come Pierre gets $200 a week, and me, I only get fifty bucks? I tole you I used to be a crotch stitcher; you know you gotta be real good to do dat kind of work so de seams are all nice an straight an smooth so nutting scratches de lady. An Pierre here, he's only a diesel fitter. And he's gonna make at least twice more dan me?!"

"Oh," the replied the lady, "but he's a skilled labourer with an education. Diesel fitters are in high demand, especially by oil companies. There's not many diesel specialists around."
"Whoa, whoa, lady," Boudreaux continued, "you got dat all wrong. Yeah, Pierre's a diesel fitter, all right. But what dat means is dat after I do all de fine work on de lady drawers, he picks dem up, looks 'em over and stretches dem dis way and dat, and den says, 'Yep, dees’ll fit her!'"
