Lighten up Mondays

Posted on Updated on

When the brash young advertising executive arrived at La Coupole for his lunch appointment, he spotted Bill Gates at a corner table and went right over.  “Excuse me for interrupting your meal, Mr. Gates,” but I know how much you appreciate enterprise and initiative.  I’m trying to win over a very important account today – it could really make or break my company – and the clients I’m meeting with would be incredibly impressed if you stopped by our table at some point and said, ‘Hello, Mike.’  It would be an incredible favor, Mr. Gates, and some day I’ll make it up to you.”

“Okay, okay,” sighed Gates, and went back to eating his lunch.  He finished and was putting on his coat when he remembered the young man’s request.  Obligingly, he went over to his table, tapped him on the shoulder, and said, “Hi, Mike.”

“Not now, Bill,” interrupted the young man, “can’t you see I’m eating?”
