 Joe is such a" sweat "little pest it reminds me of my cousin Klajdi.

that is a nice story i love it but i can't understand why we use:talk business and not talk about business.could somebody explain me that please?

Hello Andja,
We can use both 'talk business' and 'talk about business', but they have different meanings. 'Talk about business' means something similar to 'talk about music' or 'talk about food', that is to discuss a topic. 'Talk business' means to negotiate or arrange things connected with the business that two (or more) people have.
So, you and I could 'talk about business' by discussing our opinions about business in Europe. However, if I say to you 'OK, let's talk business', then it means that we are about to start discussing a deal or some other business-related arrangement that we have together.
I hope that is clear.
