Subject: BLAGUES-L: How to impress a client

This is how to impress a client. I was in the airport VIP lounge last week
en route to Seattle. While in the lounge, I noticed Bill Gates sitting on
the chesterfield enjoying a cognac. 

I was meeting with a very important client who was also flying to Seattle
with me, but she was running a bit late.  Being a forward type of guy, I
approached Mr. Gates and introduced myself.  I explained to him that I was
conducting some very important business and how I would appreciate it if
he could throw a quick " hello Mark " at me when I was with my client. He

Ten minutes later, while 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, " Hi Mark, what's happening? " 

To which I replied " F*** off, Gates; I'm in a meeting. "
