Impressing Client

Another forwarded joke but a good one. I will try this trick myself sometime soon. Thanks to Saroj.


I was in the airport VIP lounge en route to Seattle a couple of weeks

While in there, I noticed Bill Gates sitting comfortably in the corner,
enjoying a drink. I was meeting a very important client who was a! lso
flying to Seattle, but she was running a little bit late.

Well, being a straightforward kind of guy, I approached the Microsoft
chairman, introduced myself, and said, "Mr. Gates, I wonder if you would
do me a favor."


"I'm sitting right over there," pointing to my seat at the bar, and I' m
waiting for a very important client. Would you be so kind when she
arrives as to come walk by and just say "Hi Tom?"

I shook his hand and thanked him and went back to my seat. About ten
minutes later, my client showed up. We ordered a drink and started to
talk business. A couple of minutes later, I felt a tap on my shoulder. It was
Bill Gates.

"Hi, Tom," he said.

I replied, "Shut up, Bill, I'm in a meeting."
