Hi,

What is the meaning of " I'll know we *** up on Beatrice (Company) if this is the number( amount ) we take from Grace ( Company)" in the following text?

"You're saying we *** up on Beatrice because we got greedy! I'll know we *** up on Beatrice if this is the number we take from Grace. It's *** insane! It's grabbing what you can grab and running.

Please note that the context is about the case settlement and one of the lawyers( associates) of the same law firm is opposing the other lawyer regarding the proposed insufficient amount of the settlement.

Thanks

Just insert the vulgarism or obscenity of your choice. You could use the F*** word (correctly inflected), but the system here won't let me.


The speaker seems to mean this. If we get this amount from Grace, it will show us that we didn't get enough from Beatrice. But I don't think he is expressing his meaning very clearly.
