How to Impress a Client – Good Joke

May 20, 2007 · Print This Article

I was in the airport VIP lounge last week en route to Seattle. While in the lounge, I noticed Bill Gates sitting on the chesterfield enjoying a cognac. I was meeting with a very important client who was also flying to Seattle with me, but she was running a bit late. Being a forward type of guy, I approached Mr. Gates and introduced myself. I explained to him that I was conducting some very important business and how I would appreciate it if he could throw a quick “hello Chris” at me when I was with my client. He agreed. Ten minutes later, while I was conversing with my client, I felt a tap on my shoulder. It was Bill Gates. I turned around and looked up at him. He said, “Hi Chris, what’s happening?” to which I replied “Fuck off, Gates; I’m in a meeting.”


Got something to say?
