Lighten up Mondays.

A businessman was dining at a fancy restaurant and – so the story goes – met Lee Iacocca (extremely successful President & CEO of the Chrysler Corporation from 1978 to 1992 and considered the 18th-greatest American CEO of all time.)

“Mr. Iacocca,” he gushed, “the American business hero!  I’ve studied your career, and any success I’ve had comes from emulating you.  Would you do me a favor?  I’m with some colleagues.  Please come by my table, say ‘Hello, Harry,’ and let me introduce you.  It would mean so much to me.”

Iacocca agreed.  He waited for the man to sit down and then walked towards his table.

“Holy smoke!” cried one of Harry’s friends.  “It’s Lee Iacocca, and he’s heading this way!”

“Hello Harry!” Iacocca said.  “Introduce me to your friends.”

Harry looked at him blankly, “Come back later, Lee,” he said.  “Can’t you see we’re trying to have some lunch!”
