I was in the VIP lounge last week en route to Seattle, when I noticed Bill Gates sitting on the couch enjoying a cognac. I was meeting a very important client that was also flying to Seattle with me, but she was running a bit late.
Being the fairly forward person I am, I approached Mr. Gates and introduced myself. I explained to him that I was conducting some very important business, and how I would really appreciate it if he could throw a quick ‘Hello Chris’ at me while I was with my client. He agreed.
Ten minutes later when 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 “Hey Chris, what’s happening?”
I replied, “Take a hike Gates. I’m in a meeting.”
