    I was sitting 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 on a very important client. Would you be so kind when she arrives as to come walk by and just say, 'Hi, Bob,'?"


    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, Bob," he said.

    I replied, "Get lost, Gates, I'm in a meeting."
