|A guy ordered a drink in an airport cocktail lounge and suddenly realized that sitting across from him was Bill Gates.|
Barely concealing his enthusiasm, he introduced himself, "Hello, Mr. Gates. My name is Larry. You don't know me, but I'd like to ask you for a small favor."
A wary Gates asked, "And what might that be?"
"I'm meeting with a potential client here in a few minutes and if I can sign this deal, it could change my whole life. All I ask is that you walk over and greet me like an old friend. Perhaps my client will be impressed enough to swing the deal."
Relieved, Gates said, "Sure. I can do that for you."
A few minutes later, as the man sat talking with his client, Gates finished his drink, walked over to them, and said, "Hey, Larry! I thought that was you. How've you been?"
And the guy replied, "F*¢k off, Gates! I'm in a meeting here!"
