    Wow, probably alot of you guys played Children of Mana by now... you know that Balbo guy, the gem shop clerk, he's a perv. I just noticed after finishing the stone beast quest in Topple that after i talk to him he goes "Hey, Vagabond. What can i do you for?" Now that's pretty indecent!!! Just give me an awesome gem and you got a deal.

    imo I think u have a preverted mind to think it sounds perverted. I think in old times people do says things like that but doesnt have the perverted meaning people will likely to think today. Its all about sex these days with u people.

    That phrase has been used for a long time now. It's not a typo. Grow up.

    It doesn't sound unusual to me... A lot of people say that or at least used to.

    Switching words entertaining it is. And sense it makes.

    Well to begin with, english is not my first language, so there are tons of expressions i never heard before... but come on, when you tell someone "i'll do you" it clearly means only one thing. So why would it be any different here? Now like most people said "people USED to say that", there's a reason they stoped, they realised what they were saying.

    It's a good-natured, if somewhat silly colloquialism that is still very common in many parts of the U.S.
    In context, if a shop keeper says it, it is colloquial. If your cellmate says it, it probably means what you think it means.

    actually its a very common phrase in some places .
    just cause english isnt your first language doesnt excuse you from using common sense hell google would have given you a clue .cause im willing to bet that in your native language what ever that may be there are some phrases that are commonly used that if heard by someone not from there would sound very odd indeed.

    Ahh, well, Sherv did say "guys", so, just being clear.
    No worries then, I'm sure xxmadxx has been hauled off by the punctuation police by now.
    (they're coming for me next!)
