Talking Bill Gates at Seattle Airport

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

While in there, I noticed Bill Gates sitting comfortably in the
corner, enjoying a drink. I was meeting a very important client who
was also 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."

I got pissed with my bimmer, so I bought a Civic, never looked back!
